Eloquent JavaScript now available for FREE

The third edition of "Eloquent JavaScript" (rated 4.5/5 on Amazon) is now fully available for free online and downloadable as pdf, ebup, and mobi.

JS is often maligned and misunderstood but remains the most commonly used programming language [source] and is the de-facto language of browsers.
With Node.js runtime for servers and React Native for mobile apps, there seems to be nowhere you can't use JS.
This book is thorough in covering the language, its features (and its flaws), and its practical uses with easy-to follow text and great practice projects.
Whatever your experience-level with programming and/or JS, I think you'll find this book useful.

If you're programming, you'll have to work with the web, and so you'll need JavaScript and I think this the best book to become effective with JS.

I thought it has always been free?

In defense of the modern web

I expect I'll annoy everyone with this post: the anti-JavaScript crusaders, justly aghast at how much of the stuff we slather onto modern websites; the people arguing the web is a broken platform for interactive applications anyway and we should start over;

React users; the old guard with their artisanal JS and hand authored HTML; and Tom MacWright, someone I've admired from afar since I first became aware of his work on Mapbox many years ago. But I guess that's the price of having opinions.
