Hello Bear Bibeault,
First i would like to congratulate on your New book Release.
1)As you know there are quite a few books (Object-Oriented JavaScript - Stoyan Stefanov, etc )available for Object Oriented programming,I would like to know what features in this book would make,it preferable
to the rest.

2)As RE-USABILITY plays a vital role in the software industry,does the book deal with any of the javascript libraries available like MOJO,spry,dojo etc.

thanks and regards,
Sudhakar

Stoyan's book is the newly released book that we are discussing this week. Is that the book to which your questions apply?

Thanks, Sudhakar!

1) my book is less pages so there's a greater chance of people actually reading it Just kidding, The Definitive Guide is a great book. Mine pays more attention to inheritance and other coding and design patterns and the core javascript.

2) no, the book is not about a specific library
