Well the title maybe be a bit assumptive, but most javascript books I pickup, I start to fall asleep after chapter 2 or so.

So far after chapter 2 I am wide awake.  Great so far.  This authors seems to know intuitlvely what you should understand.  The foundation that you need to build your progress upon.

The BEST feature..each code example to explain a concept has a link to Live Code..where u can try it out and inspect the variables in firebug.

Very nice.

I wanted to use a javascript framework such as Dojo to build a web application. I needed the fundamentals of Object Literals explained in detail to help me with the dojo framework. This book accomplishes that goal and I find it invaluable. Well done Cody.
