If you already know some MooTools or are a competent server side programmer who wants to be better at client side programming, this is an excellent resource to help you improve and help you extend your knowledge to techniques used in other frameworks too. It's definitely not for beginners though. It's a very very dense read.
The book's second shortcoming is its completely uninspired examples. This is most evident when trying to convey concepts that require not just the "how" but the "why" as well (for example, currying. The example given made it seem like currying is a pointless exercise in over designing code).
This book is obviously a work of an inexperienced, good willed author. I have no problem with that. However, I do have a problem that I paid a sum fitting a professional book, and ended up paying for someone else's learning experience.
To the author: THANK YOU!!!
On a side note: I hope that the author is going to write another book - he really has talent!
