Who This Book Is For
TypeScript has evolved rapidly over the past few years, but my hope is that it has stabilized enough that the content in this book will remain valid for years to come.
This book focuses primarily on the language itself, rather than any frameworks or build tools. You won’t find any examples of how to use React or Angular with TypeScript, or how to configure TypeScript to work with webpack, Babel, or Rollup. The advice in this book should be relevant to all TypeScript users.
Why I Wrote This Book
When I first started working at Google, I was given a copy of the third edition of Effective C++. It was unlike any other programming book I’d read. It made no attempt to be accessible to beginners or to be a complete guide to the language. Rather than telling you what the different features of C++ did, it told you how you should and should not use them. It did so through dozens of short, specific items motivated by concrete examples.
If you’re already comfortable working in a few different programming languages, then diving straight into the odd corners of a new one can be an effective way to challenge your mental models and learn what makes it different. I’ve learned an enormous amount about TypeScript from writing this book. I hope you’ll have the same experience reading it!

One caveat: the code examples are black with light grey for key words. Depending on the quality of your vision the examples are pretty low contrast and that might make reading this one a chore for some people in those places.
