Who is this book for?

If you can answer “yes” to all of these:

  1. Do you have access to a computer with a modern web
    browser and a text editor?
  2. Do you want to learn, understand and remember how
    to program with JavaScript using the best techniques
    and the most recent standards?
  3. Do you prefer stimulating dinner party conversation
    to dry, dull, academic lectures?

this book is for you.

Who should probably back away from this book?

If you can answer “yes” to any one of these:

  1. Are you completely new to web development?
    Are HTML and CSS foreign concepts to you? If so,
    you’ll probably want to start with Head First HTML
    and CSS to understand how to put web pages
    together before tackling JavaScript.
  2. Are you a kick-butt web developer looking for a
    reference book?
  3. Are you afraid to try something different? Would you
    rather have a root canal than mix stripes with plaid?
    Do you believe that a technical book can’t be serious if
    JavaScript objects are anthropomorphized?

this book is not for you.
