[thelist] Javascript book....

I can't echo the recommendation for Danny Goodman's JS Bible enough.

It was *the* book that taught me JS...and a book I still refer to today.
It's one of those rare books that isn't too 'high-level' for a beginner to
understand and learn from...yet not too 'simple' that you'll ever outgrow

Well worth the price of admission.
