Blake, a good place to start is the Netscape JavaScript Authoring Guide...
Another good idea is to join the JavaScript mailing list, but I see you have
done this already. As of now there are no JavaScript books. Here's my advice: 
First, tread through the NS JS site. 
Then use webcrawler or yahoo to find some sites which use JS
(like mine: http://www.ids.net/~pmccarty/), and try to step through the
source of those pages. 
Once you feel comfy, start writing your own little scripts.
Keep an eye on this mailing list - you may not understand everything
everybody has to say, but you'll pick up on it...
