Since 1996, JavaScript: The Definitive Guide (known as the rhinoceros book) has been the bible for JavaScript programmers. With more than 500,000 copies in print, web developers are still raving about it. See below the quote from the creator –

“A must-have reference for expert JavaScript programmers…well organized and detailed.” – Brendan Eich, Creator of JavaScript, CTO of Mozilla

This classic book helps readers develop new JavaScript skills by building on their basic understanding of HTML, CSS, and the Web in general, and serves as a detailed reference for more seasoned web developers.

Part tutorial and part reference, the sixth edition of this bestselling book includes advanced material on the latest developer topics, such as comprehensive coverage of ECMAScript 5 (the new language standard) and also the new APIs introduced in HTML5, scripting Flash with JavaScript, object-oriented programming, HTTP and Ajax, DOM, SVG, XML, web services, and remote scripting. New chapters document jQuery and server-side JavaScript.

Hope this new edition will help you master the latest features of JavaScript. Do tell me what you think of this new edition.
