Hi all,
Can anybody just a good book on learning javascript and ajax.
Although i have knowledge on both ,it is very rusty.so I want to buy some standard books which will help in learning the language and mastering it.
Some books which i am thinking abt are
1)Javascript-the Definitive Guide
2)Head rush Ajax.

I have decided that i will go with HR-Ajax but couldnt decide on JavaScript book.I am looking forward to you guys to suggest me.

Hey guys..

I think Head rush ajax is a good book.. Definately check it out. Once you're done with that, or if you already know a little about JavaScript, you'll probably to grab our book (Enterprise Ajax) to learn about stuff like Security, OO JavaScript, Memory leaks, Web services, and how Ajax ties into enterprise development in general. All good stuff in both books for sure.

I'd be remiss not to mention Ajax in Action co-authored by our own Eric Pascarello, and my own Ajax in Practice.

The JavaRanch Bunkhouse is a great place to start to find books on such subjects.

There you will find not only lists of books on various web-related subjects, but expert reviews of these books.

Take a look!
