Recommended Javascript book

Can this community recommend a good Javascript book? I have basic experience with development, but JS is new territory. I can limp along borrowing code snippets and modifying for my own use. However, I would like to teach myself more formally.

Any obvious go-to resources?

Thanks in advance for tips — Jay

The free to download Eloquent Javascript 3rd Edition is probably as good a start as any.


Fantastic. Thank you @sylumer! Much appreciated

JavaScript is very basic as a language, so w3schools should be ok. Advanced topics are closures, promises and the OO model including prototyping. The devil is in the knowledge of a particular framework or software API, anyway.
