The book starts out great and has a very intuitive architecture for the projects. As progress further into the book, however, more things begin to not work either because the book uses an older version of a module(which I understand the author can't control after the book is released) or because the instructions in the book are just wrong or things are left out. As you get into the later chapters, there's a lot of debugging you need to do because of these mistakes. Thankfully the book has a git repo that you can clone and check the code with for every chapter.
Overall, this is a great book on learning Node but the mistakes that appear later were time consuming and annoying to fix. Hopefully the author will be releasing a second edition where these things will be fixed.
Other positives include, utilizing other technologies that can be used with other stacks aside from MEAN such Bootstrap, Git and Heroku, the best practices for making your application amorphous with APIs to output to different templates or versions of your product while working from one foundation.
Took me about 2 weeks to work through this book on and off. I'd recommend it if you're looking into this stack for the first time. If you're experienced to web dev and RESTful API's, you might be able to just get by off documentation and looking up best practices for an Express/Nodejs application.
