            this.title = title;
   = author;
      <script type="text/javascript">
         var myBook = new book("Perl", "Tom");
         book.prototype.price = null;
         myBook.price = 100;
         document.write("Book title is : " + myBook.title + "<br>");
         document.write("Book author is : " + + "<br>");
