Summary

Most programming languages contain good and bad parts, but JavaScript has more than its share of the bad, having been developed and released in a hurry before it could be refined. This authoritative book offers a detailed explanation of the features that make JavaScript an outstanding object-oriented programming language, and warns you about the bad parts. In the process, JavaScript: The Good Parts defines a subset of JavaScript that's more reliable, readable, and maintainable than the language as a whole. Author Douglas Crockford, a member of JavaScript 2.0 committee at ECMA, is considered by many people in the development community to be the JavaScript expert. A beautiful, elegant, lightweight and highly expressive language lies buried under a steaming pile of good intentions and blunders, he explains. The very good ideas include functions, loose typing, dynamic objects, and an expressive object literal notation. Awful ideas include a programming model based on global variables. With JavaScript: The Good Parts, you can release this elegant programming language from its old shell, and create more maintainable, extensible, and efficient code.
