    Hi guys.
    I started learn JS and I have a feeling that I start understand what goin on, but I think that I need to understand how works logic of different languages and how programmers solves problem. In one word – I looking for general books about programming(maybe, some goo introduction to computer science).
    Thanks for recommendation.

    Learn Python the Hard Way

    It’s a fantastic book. The approach applies to learning any programming language.

    Thanks @trag. I saw this book, but was afraid that it can mess all what I know. Do you think it will be useful for my process of learning JS?

    I don’t know – it was helpful for me, but everyone learns differently. Are you at a point where you think you’d be easily confused by looking at other languages? From your original question, I thought not, but you’ll have to answer that for yourself. If you start reading it and think you need to stop, just stop (you can read it free online, in fact).

    For JS in particular, have you looked at Douglas Crockford’s writings / presentations? Javascript: the good parts is well worth watching.

    I read Crockfods book from the start, but didn’t understand a lot, thanks for reminding. I will read his book again.

    Design Patterns: Elements of Reusable Object-Oriented Software

    I have had my eye on this for a while, have heard fantastic things about it. A little pricey though.

    Good stuff, to be sure – but it’s a quite technical read. Be prepared.

    Many of the patterns are summarized elsewhere (tutorials, etc.) around the net. Choose from a list of the patterns and do a search.
