Hi All,

I have some knowledge of JavaScript. I would like to have more exposure on that. Also I would like to learn Object oriented JavaScript. Kindly suggest great books for the same.

Note: I have seen Javascript: the missing manuals. But review says that its full of J Query. Another book that I have seen is JavaScript for developers, according to reviews this is for beginners.

Please help!

You can get early access to the book I am working on with John Resig: Secrets of the JavaScript Ninja. It is definitely aimed at those who have a basis in JavaScript but want to bring it to the next level.

If you want a finished work, Crockford's JavaScript: The Good Parts is decent.

Informative link Eric. Thanks for posting it.

Based upon that I have stricken links to W3Schools from the FAQ.
