Javascript for programmers

P: n/a
Is there a book for Javascript for programmers? There is a huge amount of
knowledge on the web but I still like the printed word.....

I'm thinking of a reference like the K&R C book... Something that lays it
out without much fluff for someone (like me) who has gobs of programming
experience but little javascript knowledge?

I've found this book to be very useful. It's the kind of book you can
read cover to cover if you like or use as a good reference to quickly
look up how to do something.

JavaScript, The Definitive Guide, 4th Edition
by David Flanagan
Published by O'Reilly
ISBN 0-596-00048-0
(It has a picture of a rhinoceros on the cover)

It has easy explanations and good examples of how to use Javascript and
a good number of pure reference pages at the back of the book. It's a
lot thicker than K & R but I think it's necessary.
