I have some basic knowledge of java script and I would like to improve upon it. Can any one point me to a good book that I can use to enhance my knowledge ?. My knowledge of CSS is also limited and not as wide as I would like it to be. I came across some books through amazon but I am pretty confused. What are your suggestions for a good book ? I came across...

The java script bible:
http://www.amazon.com/JavaScript-Bible-Danny-Goodman/dp/0764531883

and advanced javascript:

Ya know, I bought the QuickStart guide about five years ago, and I still keep it around and go back to it:

JavaScript QuickStart

I noticed that it's in it's fifth edition, and about twice the size of the original.

I found it was very 'nuts and bolts' with lots of code. Each page was pretty much "you want to do something like this? Well, here's the code to do it."

As a fairly experienced programmer, I don't want ten pages on why you might use a for loop or if statement. I just want to see how to do something, and which pitfalls to look out for. That's what this book is all about.

Cheers!

John,
Take a look at this JavaRanch review for ppk on JavaScript. It sounds a lot like what you are looking for.
