Mastering… XPatience

On 29 January I received a confirmation that my Amazon order for Mastering XPages was shipped. What shipped means here I have no idea but from a customer perspective I would expect: “expected to be dropped in your postbox any time now” but this seems not to be true:

Order Placed:

October 6, 2010

Shipment 1 of 1


Delivery Estimate: March 7, 2011

Thanks, but no thanks… I can still see that pile of books in the bookstore at LS2011 in front of my eyes…

Any recommendation for a good book about object-oriented JavaScript?

After reading Mastering Dojo plus HTML5: Up and Running and still waiting for the arrival of Mastering XPages there is place for a new book on my bedside cabinet.

Yesterday I read this post regarding object oriented JavaScript. So I did a quick search on Amazon (I used the German site since that is the nearest available from where I live (read: good shipping conditions)). The first book in the list (Object-Oriented JavaScript: Create scalable, reusable high-quality JavaScript applications and libraries) received not so good reviews, mainly because the code examples were too childish.

So that leaves me with the following question:

Do you have any recommendation for a good book about object-oriented JavaScript?
