Master Space and Time with JavaScript

Rubyist Noel Rappin (author of the Rails Test Prescriptions book) just published the first two books in his series called “Master Space and Time with JavaScript”. The books are targeted at developers who have a basic knowledge of JavaScript ut who need to learn about newer tools and practices.
