Beginning JavaScript by Paul Wilton and Jeremy McPeak


  • This book is very easy to understand even you don't have knowledge of any programming language. I'll recommend this book for UI developers.
  • I've tried several tutorials on Javascript, and Wilton's is by far the best. If you know a little HTML, you can learn Javascript.
  • This book is an excellent resource for a beginning student of JavaScript.
  • Great book, I'm only a few chapters in and it is very informative.


Javascript: The Missing Manual by David Sawyer McFarland


  • In my opinion, this is absolutely the best book for web designers who want to learn the basics JavaScript and also want to immediately take advantage of the most popular JavaScript library available.
  • If you want to learn Javascript - this has a nice introduction but doesn't go into much depth.
  • The Missing Manual starts from the ground up, introducing basic Javascript concepts like functions, arguments, and variables.
  • It provides lots of simple codes samples (tutorial files available free online!) so you can practice what you're learning.
  • If you are beyond the introductory phase in CSS/Javascript world and are looking to build something useful beyond the toy pages, this book along with his CSS book becomes very useful.


JavaScript for the World Wide Web by Tom Negrino and Dori Smith


  • This book is more than worth the price and the time to read it.
  • JAVASCRIPT FOR THE WORLD WIDE WEB is a good book for teaching JavaScript programming to people who have no real interest in learning how to program.
  • This is a good book to start learning JavaScript.
  • The examples are well explained, and the examples are, for the most part, things you will want to do in JavaScript, i.e. real-world examples.


Javascript: The Definitive Guide by David Flanagan


  • This is one of the best JavaScript books.
  • It's very good but not updated to ES6. It uses ES5
  • I highly recommend it to web devs of any level.
  • If you want to learn JavaScript from the ground up and have a solid foundation, this is the book.


JavaScript Patterns: Build Better Applications with Coding and Design Patterns by Stoyan Stefanov


  • This book is everything I had expected it to be, and more!
  • If you are a person trying to take Javascript seriously, this plus other books will help you to get to pro status.
  • If you have been using JavaScript for a while now and are looking to both increase your level of proficiency and increase your productivity, this is the book for you.
  • This book (along with Crockford's JS Good Parts) has good learning material to digest once you have begun reading and writing JavaScript after a few months.


JavaScript: The Good Parts by Douglas Crockford


  • Many examples and real-life proven, useful tips. I could relate to the possible pitfalls of JavaScript.
  • I have begun JavaScript with this comprehensive book this is totally helpful. Even many times it appears that the book is motivating towards JavaScript.
  • This book is a must read for every JavaScript developer.
  • I guess it's really good for any beginner.
  • People who are at an intermediate level should read this book. This would help them improve their concepts.


Eloquent Javascript by Marijn Haverbeke


  • This is a pretty great resource, and it also includes an in-browser environment to test out javascript.
  • One of the best programming language books, I ever have come across.
  • This book is really helpful for the beginners who are trying to start up with basic JavaScript programming, whether it is a student or an adult.
  • This book is outstanding. You can play with the example coding problems.
  • This book is phenomenal - the best book on programming I've ever read.
  • It is like working with a mentor who is showing you the ins and outs—the good, the bad, and ugly—of working with JavaScript.
