I like the learning approach this book takes. It puts a slight twist on learning compared to other books and I think it will make learning JavaScript a pleasurable experience rather then an intimidating one. Do you plan to offer additional exercises via your website to allow people to further practice what they'd learned? Perhaps offering a few sample incomplete projects where people can take the skeleton and fill in the missing parts?

Also do you have any plans to take this learning approach and write a book for learning JQuery? I would love to see that.

Thanks for you this nice learning addition
-Lance

Lance, I'm glad you like the approach.

Your ideas for further practice are good ones. I'm going to give some thought to how I might accomplish it.

Current publishing plans:

This fall: A Smarter Way to Learn HTML & CSS
Spring 2015: A Smarter Way to Learn jQuery
Fall 2015: A Smarter Way to Learn PHP
Spring 2016: A Smarter Way to Learn Ruby

Thanks for the reply Mark. I will look forward to reading your "A Smarter Way to Learn jQuery" book when it is available.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
