There was a moment where I considered making that sentence the content for this entire post, and then just publishing it and moving on in an attempt to drive home how nothing more needs to be said about how brilliant this book is.
Chapter 3 contains 12 excellent items covering functions. Commonly complex subjects like
apply are fleshed out really REALLY well.
For me personally, the sixth chapter on “Library and API Design” was worth the price of the book alone and I’ve publicly said so. The day I learned the intricacies of what it takes to create jQuery-like chainable, configurable methods was a good day in my house.
But Effective takes that material, along with many other popular JS concepts, and teaches you things you never knew about them. No matter how much you know about JS, you will learn something new after reading this book.
That is all.
