There is a common saying “It’s Better Late Than Never”. If you have not got a chance to learn pure JavaScript yet and jumped directly into jQuery or other frameworks, you might want to gain some basic knowledge on JavaScript in order to improve your advanced coding capabilities. For me, books are always much better than some blogs or online course. But that’s my personal opinion. In this post, I have listed down 15 best books on JavaScript that I would recommend every . Although most of these books do not include the latest ES6 features, still it is a lot fun to learn how old timers used to discover hacks to deal with simple problems like using array on algorithms.
