There's also Light Functional JavaScript by Kyle Simpson (same author as YDKJS), and I believe he's working on another, more in-depth book on functional JS.

@thegoodsheppard just saw your comment after I wrote this.

Simpson is the gold standard in technical instruction authors IMO, as he just breaks down everything so well for all experience levels. Everyone else sort of feels like a letdown after reading his work.

Ahah

Everyone else
...that you know ;)

Without going so far, let's add Will Sentence: Excellent teacher and great energy in his FrontEndMasters classes.
Axel is also top notch: exploringjs.com/deep-js/ is his new book.

mostly-adequate.gitbooks.io/mostly... is also good FP with JS.

We can add sandimetz.com/99bottles to the collection

eloquentjavascript.net/ eloquent JS is free to browse btw.

Thanks Mike!—That is definitely a book I was leaning towards but didn't want to prime the response.
