I have read Headfirst Java and that was just awesome. Is headfirst javascript programming same as headfirst java in terms of concepts and its funky way of presentation? Moreover till what extent javascript has been covered in the book? Also does it includes some contents on jquery or ajax?

Why do we fall? So that we can learn to pick ourselves up.

Hi Saumyaraj,
Head First JavaScript Programming is very much the same as Head First Java in terms of style and presentation. However, the content is obviously very different But the same idea: we cover the language fundamentals.

We don't cover jQuery or Ajax; we cover Ajax in Head First HTML5 Programming, and jQuery is covered in Head First jQuery (not our book).

You can check out a sample chapter here to see what it's like:
