JavaScript Jems: The Amazing Parts (I/O Press)
Wednesday, 27 May 2020

This book is a "meditation" on the features that make JavaScript stand apart from other languages and make it special in terms of having admirable qualities. Author Mike James has written a series of twenty "Jems" each showing the language in a new light, each intended to be an enjoyable read for any JavaScript programmer about features that have their advantages and disadvantages over their counterparts in other languages. The book has been written for everyone who encounters JavaScript – not just its aficionados but also its detractors. It looks at how JavaScript does things differently from the perspective of how its differences can be exploited and put to good use.
