Torn between these 2 JS books

Hey Pi - is there a reason why you think Zakas’ book is dated? Do you think it would serve as a good reference, or can you recommend one (hard copy)? The reason I ask, is because as I myself am learning Javascript, I find myself constantly having to look up syntax examples (I never know if my issue is syntax or just bad coding) on the web when it would be nice to have a good book in front of me that I can just flip to - because, once I start searching for things on the web I invariably get side-tracked…do you know what I mean?
