Human JavaScript is available now.

After years spent compiling, eight months of writing, editing and rewriting, figuring out the process for epublishing and learning how to use Gumroad (which we highly recommend!) – Human JavaScript is finally available.

As an experiment, we released it a week ago to see what the reaction would be and so far the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. Here's what people have said about Human JavaScript in the past week:

"...required reading for every JavaScript Developer." @svenlito

"Human Javascript is one of these books I would have loved to have read two years ago. Great book!" @normanrz

"Never thought I'd enjoy reading a book about JS. And it's a great resource for the new guy." @KevSpence

"The best book you can buy right now to get a grip on frontend JavaScript" @janl

"This looks like what I've wanted to exist to give to people stuck in $-all-the-things land so many times. Insta-buy." @JeremyMorrell

"...winner for best intro vid." @voodootikigod

And now it can be yours for $29!

Your purchase includes

  • 100+ pages of clear explanations
  • Code examples
  • Project skeleton for JavaScript applications
  • A lifetime subscription to updates of the book

Not to mention a foreward by Jan Lehnardt, Open Source Software developer responsible for all sorts of cool things like, mustache.js and Apache CouchDB. Read an excerpt from it at

Human JavaScript is available in DRM-free Kindle, ePub, or PDF. 100 user site licenses are also available for your dev team for $249. We'll keep you posted on the other publishing options we've been looking into.

Henrik also added some info to the Human JavaScript site last week, if you're needing persuading. Check out the table of contents on the book at
