For all levels.

For middle to higher level this book may be good.

Designing with JavaScript by Nick Heinle (O'Reilly) is a great book.
About to be republished.

I have to concur with jahanns
JavaScript : The definitive guide is good for all levels.
I also suggest this website. http://rummelplatz.uni-mannheim.de/~skoch/js/part1/part1.htm
I found it very useful as a starting point!!

And I have to concur with Angela (David Flanagan's book), if you want to be a serious student of JavaScript.

Talking about JavaScript,
these are my $0.02 cents
I love the language for informal apps where (like in my personal pages) I am not trying to SELL anything.
For a business trying to sell goods over the Web (one type of e-commerce), it is not wise to assume that the client browser is JavaScript enabled and therefore loose potential business.
This is where "Thin Client" comes in.
It doesn't have to be Larry Ellison's one.
It just has to be a PC and HTML Web browser owned by Dorothy in Kansas
All of the functionality should be in the Server (that's one of the reasons why they call it "Server side Java").
The tracking of sessions can be done (in an abstract way) by the HttpSession object which will use cookies if they are enabled, or URL reWriting if they are not. Both abstracted away from the programmer.
Isn't Java wonderful?

Hello
I went on the site and whenever I try to register, I get the message "password incorrect".
Can somebody tell me what am I doing wrong?

I have had different books over the years and I am finally using JavaScript for purposes other than my personal webpage and I find Pure JavaScript as a very good reference, its not a step by step intro to JavaScript but its a good quick reference ..almost what Javadocs are for Java...it covers almost all the aspect of the language so expect it to be very thick!!

Rahul R,
I just seen it. Maybe.....it said you should disable the proxy server in your browser before registering.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
