I agree with Tom's comments on JS2.0. I wouldn't worry too much about
learning it right now -- better to give yourself a good grounding in what's
currently out there.

My favourite Javascript book by a long way is "Javascript: The Definitive
Guide (4th edition)" by David Flanagan. It's a really great book, and I use
it all the time.


If you're new to programming then it might not be the right book for you.
But it suits me fine, because I don't like having to wade through
introductory stuff about what a variable is every time I get a new book :-)
