Javascript is one of the very few tools that is 'free', and it also does not
have a steep learning curve.
It is in this sense one of the most accessible tools for web authoring.

Javascript books to my knowledge do not deal extensively(if at all) with
accessibility.
It is important to demonstrate with clear exposition and good coding how to
incorporate the benefits of client side javascript into a homepage, and
maintain accessibility.
