Not good for a developer looking to learn about building a scalable app with Laravel and Vue. Does not actually explain how any of Laravel's "magic" works and thus how you can leverage it to your advantage, mostly just "copy this code and see how your screen looks like mine." This book will lead you down the path of bad and/or antiquated practices and writing inflexible code.
If you want to learn about building with Vue and Laravel, go through a quick Vue tutorial (it's an easy framework especially if it is not your first) and pick up the O'Reilly book "Laravel Up & Running" skipping most of the server-side rendering parts.
Our application backend was based on Ruby, so I don't really cared about Laravel, but it was also quite interesting (never heard about it).
I recommend this book by all means no matter what your Vue level is. If you never touched it even with a stick, you will be guided from the very beginning and if you already know what you are doing, I'm sure you will find things you were doing wrong or much better ways of doing the same.
What I liked most about Anthony's book is the real-world application used to build out the knowledge on. It's the difference between being given the bare minimum basics of an aspect and then grappling with implementation in a real-world scenario, and being given the theory - as well as sound implementation in a decent sized application.
In so doing you get to learn and experience interaction nuances, not only for VueJS but Laravel as well, which, for me is the best learning experience. The book is also packed with extras you are going to have to master in your VueJS journey and so is one the best investments I've made in my knowledge quest.
In addition to Vue and Laravel, the book does cover a lot of material including Webpack, VueRouter, Vuex, Passport etc, but only really scratches the surface on these. The focus is more on how to use them together in a single app.
My only frustration was having to set up Homestead when I normally use Valet, but it does cover a solid approach to full stack development.
Could have gotten into more detail on Webpack, though I guess you can't expect everything from a single book.
I recommend this book to others.
