      Comments about oreilly Professional JavaScript for Web Developers, 3rd Edition:

      Hello, first of all, I am Peruvian, excuse my bad English. I'm learning Javascript with three books, "The definitive guide", "Head First HTML5 programming," and "Professional JavaScript for Web Developers, 3rd Edition". I bought them in that order, and I'll take the latter, I am left with that, because it has a little of both worlds is a good book to learn step by step, and due to their level of complexity, it is also a great reference book .

      The way the chapters are organized seems optimal, I do still recommend to someone who is starting, and someone looking to improve their standard.
