Hey guys, I completed the tribute & portfolio challenges & moving forward to the JS section. I really want to know about some books that will help me clear the concepts and supliment the FCC course.

Eloquent Javascript is always recommended reading

Thanks for the advice.

You can read Javascript: Novice to Ninja and 9 other books on web development by downloading it for free from

Just bought myself a hard copy of Eloquent JavaScript.
Great intro to programming, nicely written in every day language, excellent examples and exercises and very well defined and useful chapters. I’ve only read about a quarter of it so far and I highly recommend it.

Side note: having a real book on hand is VERY useful for when you want to study and take a break from screens. Nothing compares to reading text on paper.


  • You give your eyes a much needed break

  • It helps you focus on what you are reading since you can’t look up anything - your book doesn’t have a search bar

  • You can bring it to the cottage and read it by the lake with a cold beer in hand and not worry about dropping it in the water (less expensive than an iPad)

I recommend this
