    For basic JavaScript...

    Eloquent JavaScript is a free e-book "providing an introduction to the JavaScript programming language and programming in general."

    Code Academy "Codecademy" gets a lot of good press.

    If you only got one physical book on the subject, you'd be hard-pressed to find one better than Douglas Crockford's JavaScript: The Good Parts. (And if you can't/don't want to get the book, at the very least watch his Google talk.)

    Edit
    You might also want to look over this question on Stack Overflow: Best resources to learn JavaScript

    Not much on jQuery in my response, but there you go :/

    First learn JavaScript to an intermediate level than jQuery. Learning jQuery before JavaScript in its simplest form will not provide a means of stepping past the beginner (configuration) stage. More important than that though is learning programming fundamentals which can be applied to any language.
    The only code I hate more than my own is everyone else's.
