Free to a good home: JavaScript: The Definitive Guide by David Flanagan.

It’s rare for technical books to be held in such high esteem, but the numbers speak – this book has close to 200 five star ratings on Amazon, confirming that The Definitive Guide is still one of the seminal guides to the JavaScript language. Flanagan’s book is a must read for developers and designers alike. Along with JavaScript: The Good Parts by Douglas Crockford of course. I reviewed this book a while back, you can read my review.
