    1. While reading Nicholas Zakas' High Performance JavaScript, it occurred to me that there were actually two different reviews that I wanted to write. So, rather than try to reconcile them into one review, I'll simply apply them here as an ordered list.(1) To continue with the JavaScript University metaphor (from my review of Zakas' Professional JavaScript for Web Developers): Finals are coming up in Prof. Crockford's upper-division JavaScript class. You've been a diligent student all semester and [...]

    2. I've routinely seen this book on short-lists of must read JavaScript books. I unfortunately waited too long to read it. As the foreword notes at the time the book was written the browser landscape was drastically different than it is as we start 2016. Certain chapters still hold relevant nuggets of advice but overall this book is no longer a must read, in particular all of the browser benchmarks need to be rerun on modern browsers. Loading and Execution is still important but doesn't cover newer [...]

    3. A disappointment, but mostly due to its age. When a book features performance testing of Google Chrome versions 1 and 2, you know something's off. Finally forced myself to finish reading it, but found little of value in the back half of the book. The problem is that almost everything in the book is a well-established best practice now, and if you're even moderately up-to-date on writing good JavaScript, the book is almost all repetition.That said, the big payoff was Chapter 3. Here is where the [...]

    4. Full of outdated advice and old benchmarks. It wasn't really what I was looking for. If you are working with IE 6, then there are some valuable tips, but if you are not and have some experience developing JavaScript, there is not much new here.

    5. This book has few good points, but it almost irrelevant for the existing tech stack. You might get more from google developer website rather than this book in terms of performance. developers.google/web/fun

    6. This book is not for a beginner in JavaScript. It's intended more as a "best practices" guide for people who are already at least intermediate in the JavaScript skills. If you have a hard time wrapping your head around object-oriented JavaScript and closures, you probably aren't ready for this one, just yet.The section on regular expressions and how they work, under the hood, was nearly worth the price of admission by itself. I've spent many years working with Perl, had the college-level course [...]

    7. I give it a 3.7. After three or four false starts, I was able to read this book until it was done. I think it took me a while to get into this book because in the beginning it felt like he spent forever just talking about scopes. It could also have been that back then the Nook (Color)? didn't support pdf books as well as it does today. Mostly meaning it didn't save what page you were on last. Every time you open the pdf, it started back at the beginning.After a few pages, and I was able to get i [...]

    8. A readable and easily digestible guide to JavaScript performance. As a JS beginner, I learned a good deal about different best practices and the little quirks of JS that can have a large impact on performance. I'm not sure how much value this will have to anyone who has done a good deal of JavaScript programming, as the guidelines seem very simple and straightforward. However, the chapters on the DOM and String processing were very good, and the first chapter, on loading JS, seemed very foundati [...]

    9. Pretty good reference. I think the book's age (references IE4) actually helps it in some ways, as it discusses guidelines and practices for improved performance on browsers much less powerful than we have now. Most developers should be familiar with the majority of this book (script placement, sync vs async, caching, etc.) but there were plenty of other interesting topics, such as real-world use cases bitwise operators and Duff's device.

    10. Книга отличная и действительно дает понять насколько зависят оптимизации от типа ошибок и как их лучше применить. Настоящим открытием стал пример Устройства Дафа, который действительно на больших кол-вах операций ускоряет процесс выполнения по сравнению с циклов в 2-3 раз [...]

    11. at least 5 stars is attractive for me at some charpters:it introduce Strings optimizedata format performanceloops and conditionals optimize,timerdata access contain closuresdom,many ways are applicative and i can correct my previous useage of bad performance,so i give the book 5 stars,and it is understandable.

    12. Un ottimo testo, con moltissime informazioni utili e chiare sulle capacità e le compatibilità dei maggiori browser (IE, Firefox, Safari, Chrome in diverse versioni). Molti dei consigli, soprattutto nella prima parte del libro, per migliorare prestazioni e interattività sono validi anche in altri linguaggi, sia lato server che general purpouse.

    13. Though about half the book is rehash for experienced javascripters, it's nice to have all these tips in one place, and Zakas gives several topics (loop unrolling, local caching) better coverage than any I've read elsewhere.

    14. Just an other awesome book by Nicolas Zakas. The first 3 chapters are critically important for every project. If you are going to build javaScript applications that requires a high amount of resources this book is the number one to read.

    15. In my mind books by Zakas are compulsory reading. It will take you through esoteric Javascript idiosyncrasies and help you to understand the many variables in the web environment in which the language is most employed.

    16. Even though this book is mainly front-end oriented, it also covers performance good practices in idiomatic JavaScript. The majority of the content is still up to date. This is a must-have for Full-Stack JS developers.

    17. I'd rate this book 4 stars if it weren't so dated (read it in 2013). It is still a good read and gives a good perspective on the path javascript development is on. It also did spark some good discussions among my coworkers and jump-started our conversation on coding standards.

    18. Author mentions IE7 too often for the book about performance but general ideas still make sense. Would love to check more up-to-date edition.

    19. Excellent consolidation of a wide range of tips and tools for optimizing JavaScript and the loading of JavaScript resources. If you work with JavaScript, you should read this.

    20. I need to re-read this once I understand more about JS, anyway I could grasp a lot of concepts about performance from this.

    21. Lots of useful tips and hints to improve your (native javascript) code ja regex performance. Tools section is outdated but still points to the right direction.
