JavaScript, DOM scripting, Ajax, win stuff

I’ve posted several reviews of JavaScript-related books here lately. Chris Heilmann’s Beginning JavaScript with DOM Scripting and AJAX isn’t one of them. The reason is very simple: I haven’t read it. I don’t even have a copy. Yet.

For anyone else who is in the unfortunate position of not owning a copy of the book, a competition that Chris has arranged may be of interest. You can win some nice goodies, including a copy of the book, by either

  • coming up with a better title and taking a photo of the book with your new title covering the old one
  • taking a photo of you presenting the book in a sexy way

Hmm. Both of those require you to already have access to the book. I guess you can go to a book store and take your photo. Be careful if you decide to do the sexy thing though ;-).

  1. Hi Roger,

    I think you mean “unfortunate position of not owning a copy of the book”. :)

    Oops! Yes, that is what I mean ;-). Thanks.

  3. “Be careful if you decide to do the sexy thing though”

    And that, kids, is all you really need to know.

    So let’s see…to win a copy of the book, I have to take a picture of me with the book. Yes. That makes sense.

  5. Or you could spend 15 mins with Photoshop :)

  6. Actually, to win a copy of the book or a voucher of ANY of Apress’ ebooks. Always read the fine print. Furthermore, there is a thing called bookstores. I know, scary stuff that real world.
