I own that and the 5th edition of the Javascript Bible, both of which  
are by Danny Goodman.  I have found that the problem I most often  
face with javascript is trying to figure out how to adapt my own  
algos -- I know a perfectly good way of doing something, but I need  
to know which DOM features are available in the browsers I'm  
targeting to make the implementation fly. For this, the Javascript  
Bible is much more useful.
