Favorite feature? That's a tough one. I guess I'd have to say closures, that allow JavaScript to be effectively used as a functional language. Simplifies everything.

Least favorite? Hmmm, maybe the with statement. Thank goodness it's going bye-bye.

P.S. There are three chapters (3, 4 and 5) that cover functions and closures in detail.

And even though the with statement is discredited, it exists in the wild and developers may have to deal with it in legacy code, so we have a chapter devoted to it as well (chapter 10).
