Comments about oreilly JavaScript: Novice to Ninja:

A great book for novices just about to reach intermediate status level in Javascript. The books ties the basic concepts with intermediate concepts that just clicked for me.

I learned how to do proper testing and debugging, manipulating the DOM, and objects really easily. And he has one of the best explanations of closures I've read.

I have to take one star away for not having an index; I think not having one makes review difficult. Other than that, this book is a must-have for anyone wanting to learn Javascript from the ground up.
