A wonderful book with some minor flaws.


I could not have done anything without this book. It started for me my whole 'Advanced Language' writing. Since reading this book I have written over 20 small JavaScript programs and 2 large applictaions.
The book is readable (if somewhat boring at times) and highly understanble. The books sucession of topics gives you the basis for future topics, and allows for easy learning througout the whole book.
I was dissapointed at the content of the chapter on 'Cookies', but with what you have from the rest of the book you can easily learn all about cookies from the web.

Well, it's Knuth


These volumes are considered first-class references on the subject of computing and algorithms. And they are... but these aren't really books to read. Nobody has time for that. However, for those computer scientists that really are hard up for something to read one of those rainy nights, Knuth has a personal flair and humor that spills into his algorithm summaries and exercises that is unsurpassed, at least in the field of CS handbooks. An excellent source for solutions to commonly asked questions and problems.

nice and clear to the point.


Good book if you want to find how to apply VB.NET in different areas. BUT if you want to know VB.NET itself, don't waste your time, it should be the last book in your list.

Must Have Reference, Especially for VB Programmers


In order to program the client/browser side of any WEB application one must understand both the brower object model and the JScript language. I'm more then 10 years out of C programming and the Java thing makes me yawn.
This book explains the browser object and JScript language in an extremely useful manner. The theory pages do not waste my time and do not insult my intellegence. The reference pages get to the point.
VB programmers with no C experience will find this book very accesable.
