This book was frustrating to use. The book's approach seems to be to rush the reader through the creation of an app, and only partially explain things along the way. I imagine that they may explain some of the mysteries later in the textbook, and that they want to rush you along to give you the satisfaction of having created something that works.
However, I've found a number of typos and errors. That's a problem, because the reader is likely new to Node/MongoDB, since it's an introductory textbook. When the book instructs you to run the app so far and something goes wrong because of one of those errors, it's hard for the reader to know how to solve the problem, because the book hasn't explained how everything in the app actually works.
In Chapter 4, for example, the book helps us create a very simple 'server.js' file, and run that file. So far, so good. The book does a decent job of explaining that file so far, what's in it, and why. Then the next section adds a 'configure.js' module, and this is where the problems start. The book says that the app should still run smoothly after updating the 'server' file and adding the 'configure' file. But the 'configure' code listed in the book has two semi-obvious syntactical typos. Even after correcting those, the app doesn't run correctly, because the 'configure' module is requiring a third module, './routes', which the book hasn't given us instructions for creating yet.
The book gives the impression of not having been very well reviewed/edited. I'm nearly ready to give up on it. Maybe it will get clearer after chapter 4, and the outside reading I'll need to do to understand any poorly-structured parts will probably be good for me anyway. But I really can't recommend this book.
