Reviews

“Ferguson, a freelance developer and instructor at Pratt Institute, and Cirkel, a London-based consultant, have produced a useful set of descriptions (‘recipes’) for the JavaScript (ECMAScript) language, including features of version 6 of the language, which was finalized in 2015. … Each recipe has a title and four subsections: ‘Problem,’ ‘Solution,’ ‘The Code,’ and ‘How It Works.’ … Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-division undergraduates and above; faculty and professionals.” (C. Vickery, Choice, Vol. 54 (11), July, 2017)
