    Novice at JS.

    Hello. I just started to learn JS and I need your advice. I am learning JS from the book David Flanagan
    "JavaScript The Definitive Guide Sixth Edition". I want to ask you if this book good enough? Which level it covers? Is it a comlete course of JS?

    Never read it myself, but I can say probably has everything you need to learn JavaScript as a language. The issue comes in whether or not it teaches you how to code. Usually, in the introduction to the book, it will say "who it's for" or at least tell you what prerequisite knowledge you'll need. It should also say what you should expect to learn from it. If the point is for you to learn to code using JavaScript, then you might be able to pick it up that way. If it says you should know programming basics, you've likely picked up a developer reference, and unless you have a good programming foundation, you'll struggle.

    The bonus is that once you learn programming basics, which you can somewhat learn from JavaScript, learning other languages is often as simple as picking up some kind of reference.
