Douglas Crockford also has videos available on Yahoo!, so I started there, where he talks about some of the items brought up in this book. However, since I couldn’t focus long enough on the videos, and find reading to be a better experience, I picked up a copy of his book.
The book is indeed short, and I was able to sit down with it and read it over the course of a handful of hours, although I expect to go back and read at least one of the chapters again (and keep the book around as a reference, since I purchased an electronic copy).
As already mentioned, I purchased an electronic copy of the book, and therefore can’t speak to the quality of physical copies. However, I’ve generally found O’Reilly books to be well made.
Four of five stars, since I believe the free videos he did will help a number of people that learn that way, thereby making the purchase of this book unnecessary, as well as that he could have trimmed some of the extraneous material from this book to make it that much more concise.
