[Disclosure: I am the technical reviewer for this book]Let me start by saying, if you want to maximize the benefit from reading "JavaScript Unlocked" you better have understanding of JavaScript 101. That said, take it from someone who has done a ton of reading on the subject matter that the author covers in this book. It's simply an exceptional resource for modern JS programmers.It gets you started with JavaScript core and then covers one specific but practically vital topic for modern Web App development. My personal favorite chapters are "Modular Programming with JavaScript", "Asynchronous JavaScript" and "A Large Scale JavaScript Application Architecture". Examples are pretty realistic to which you can relate to and that helps you understand the concept completely so that it can be used in your day to day coding.Overall, its a great packaging of cherry picked topics which JS programmers require today to build scalable and realistic Web App.

This is my kind of technical book! I love the no-fluff, just-the-facts approach. The author makes a statement, then follows it up with a concise example that makes the concept crystal clear. I'm able to put the concepts immediately to use in my own applications. I'm not forced to wade through pages of tutorials that make a single point, like other books. Many thanks to the author for making efficient use of my time. I wish more books were like this. The topic coverage it fantastic, and its packed with tips and tricks I've never seen before.Best of all, it illustrates techniques and best practices for both ES5 and ES2015, which was a pleasant surprise for me. The book will remain relevant for some time to come. There's nothing here that I will have to unlearn in a few months. Love this book. 5 stars!
