Format: Paperback
JavaScript is evolving so we can write asynchronous programs that look more like synchronous programs. Promises and generators have arrived with ES6, and async and await keywords are coming in ES7. It will take time for JavaScript idiom to coalesce around promises, and more time for essential libraries to adapt or be replaced by modern alternatives. During these changes, we will need several books to help us understand and properly apply these new JavaScript language features.

This book about JavaScript promises is more booklet than book, but it is very worthwhile. It is terse and exacting. If you already know JavaScript and you want to learn about promises (and generators, and iterators), you can read this book and try the exercises in a couple of sittings and come away with a good appreciation for what promises adds to JavaScript.

I have wondered whether the Bluebird promise library will retain purpose after ES6 is widely deployed. This book bases several examples on Bluebird, and the answer seems to be that Bluebird provides useful extended features that will continue to make it a valid choice above and beyond the basic promise features now found in JavaScript itself.

We need more books on promises to augment this book. In particular, I would like to spend time in a book with exercises and examples that build on basic concepts and explore when and how to use Bluebird for Node.js server side programming. But as a general introduction to promises that will help us get started, I highly recommend this book.
