Eloquent JavaScript is an "opinionated guide to programming" written by Marijn
. It's been around for a few
years now, but if you haven't seen it before it's definitely worth a
look. It has 14 chapters with two appendices, and is available for free!

It covers important topics like functional programming, modularity,
events, and some interesting obscure control
. The text
includes verbose examples complete with syntax highlighting. Haverbeke
even references libraries like jQuery and Prototype.
