"The book's title could have easily been named, "JavaScript Fundamentals That You Absolutely Need to Know in Order to Become Better at JavaScript"."
-- Justin Saraceno, justinsaraceno.com, Blogger

"Short, clear code samples are the stars of this fine, informative book. And most of the code samples can be viewed, executed and modified online using file links provided for the jsFiddle.net website. The book's goal is "to give the reader an accurate JavaScript worldview through an examination of native JavaScript objects and supporting nuances: complex values, primitive values, scope, inheritance, the head object, etc."; Cody Lindley adds: "I intend this book to be a short and digestible summary of the ECMAScript 3 Edition specification, focused on the nature of objects in JavaScript." Lindley keeps that promise in his 147-page book."

"Cody Lindley's "JavaScript Enlightenment" has an awesome title, and I wanted very much to like it"“but I think I'm going to have a hard time recommending it to anyone. It's a 150 page essay on auto-boxing, full of dangerous code examples and anti-patterns and soft warnings to "not do what I just did"¯, and some of the wording is not-wrong-but-not-quite-right, but hey there are some decent parts."
