Need to learn JavaScript - Suggestions on how to start, book suggestions.

Hi,

I'd like to learn JavaScript.

Currently I have no background on JavaScript and hence what I understand of it is sort of vague. As per my current understanding it is a C like, prototype based, sort of a scripting language but that is all. A couple of days back a friend of mine had given me a 15 minutes' session on JavaScript to show me what JavaScript code looks like. It looked sort of not too difficult then but I understand it's too early to say that.

So I think, it'll be better if I start with a beginner's JavaScript book -- a book that explains not only how to code in JavaScript but also gives some sort of an introduction on what JavaScript can/cannot do, what parts should be coded in JavaScript etc.

Do you have any book recommendations? I love to read books and I find it easier to read books than to go through the online tutorials. I've heard a lot of people say very good things about 'The Secrets of The JavaScript Ninja'. So do you suggest that I start with the same book? Or is this book only for people who already know JavaScript and/or are used to the client side of coding?

Thanks,
Chan.
