Great guide for beginners

This book comes along with other JavaScript books and I noticed that learning JavaScript is fastest when I peruse this book first. The instructions are clear and well laid out, and the examples are all easy to follow. A great guide for JavaScript programming especially for beginners.

Very good purchase

At first I thought having the narrator read code was a bit odd, but sitting down listening to it in front of my laptop while coding, I found it incredibly useful to be able to type as I listened versus having to glance over at a book, which has always broken my focus a bit in the past. After this experience, I now prefer listening to code as I practice over other forms of practice

Too fast and too much for beginners

I really want to learn JavaScript, and use online courses by The New Boston now to do so. I thought by listening I'd have some real pearls stick in my brain. I had to stop listening. It was way over my head, went to fast, and left too many terms undefined. In my opinion, this title is not for beginners- at least not this one. Learning is subjective, many times, so I am not dissing this book, but merely warning you to listen to the sample first.

Perfect for beginners!

I wanted to expose my 16 year old son to something that would help instill some valuable skill in him, and I thought coding would be really good. He was reluctant at first, but I sat down with him as we listened and he was able to understand and follow the steps the narrator was telling him to take. I personally have no knowledge of anything this is about, but my son was really happy after he went through it and has even started listening and practicing on his own now! I think this was a good choice for him!

Great and very informative

"I've listened to other books on the topic and honestly, I couldn't even finish them because the narrators would be so boring I felt like I was falling asleep. I really appreciate the narrator having a bit more skill in making what could be dry material a bit easier on the ears. He sounds like a friend giving you advice, not your college professor at the front of a lecture hall."
