    Best Book To Learn JavaScript With

    Morning All

    I want to turn my attention to JavaScript, try to learn it inside out. Would you be able to recommend the best book for me to start with?

    To let you know my knowlege level, I understand html and css, and have edited already created Javascript files, but have never created a file from scratch, created my own calls and loops etc.

    Thanks All

    Check out Thau's tutorials at Webmonkey. You may gain a clear understanding of JavaScript without needing to buy a book.

    Thanks World Wide Weird

    I will certainly have a look, but I must be old fashioned as I prefer to learn from a book.

    Any ideas? I'm not worried about spending £20 - £25

    Thanks all

    I like the Oreilly books.
    Javascript, the definitive guide by David Flannigan is well written and useful.

    The fifth edition is the latest one- the next edition will most likely be for javascript 2.

    I learned JavaScript by reading Danny Goldman's "JavaScript Bible". It also contains an excellent cross-browser reference.
