    JavaScript Books Help

    Ok guys and girls, I'd like your help on which JavaScript books to buy! After what seems like hours of searching, reading reviews, looking at tables of contents and contemplating I've decided that I'll read some more...Read what you guys (and girls) think.

    I've created my own shortlist (although it's not very short lawl) of what I think I may be happy with purchasing and reading through. If there's a book you know on JavaScript / DOM Scripting that I should definately buy that I haven't listed in this shortlist or haven't listed in the list of books I already have then please tell me. It's a fairly long shortlist really, a longlist I guess, but I don't know what I'm doing and the books listed below seem to be in my range / level.

    Feel free to suggest / recommend a list of books from this list as I won't just be buying one. Unless there is one book that covers absolutely everything these is to know about beginners JS (you know, basically everything JS excluding the OOP side) in which case I'll finally buy one last book on JS and not need to spend anymore! All of the links go to so you can see the prices in UK British pounds - my budget is around 100, maybe 150 as I'll get some of the books for my birthday and pay for anymore with my own money.

    - DOM Scripting: Web Design with JavaScript and the Document Object Model
    - Simply JavaScript
