For a text on programming the book is short (153 pages), but packs in an extraordinary amount of information. One technique used to achieve that is the use of railroad diagrams, a clever innovation. Also, the author does not describe the umpteen possible ways of doing something, but describes in detail a method that he has found to work.
Douglas Crockford is an outstanding technical communicator. His writing is not only lucid, it is a pleasure to read. This is a well-organised text, well supported by example code (available for download at a companion website) and diagrams. O'Reilly has done an excellent job of typographic design.
