There are plenty of JavaScript books out there, but this is definitely one of the best. First of all it's O'Reilly and that means one thing, the best information for professional developers in almost every field of computer science programming.
The book is very well structured. In Part 1, Core JavaScript, you get a very detailed presentation of the language, including its advanced features such as closures. In Part 2, Client-Side JavaScript, you are presented both the basic Document Object Model and the W3C standard DOM. You have a very interesting chapter on cookies and other client-side persistence techniques. The book also deals with JavaScript and XML, demonstrates how to use JavaScript serialize/deserialize objects into/from XML documents, how to do basic parsing It also introduces the E4X extension to the core JavaScript language. There's even a diverse coverage of JavaScript's client-side graphics capabilities including the usage of Flash, Java and SVG plugins for dynamic web pages. You get an introduction on how to make scripted HTTP requests using XMLHttpRequest object for Ajax-style applications. Part 3 presents the standard core JavaScript API.
All in all a great book, containing almost everything you need about JavaScript.
