I would love to see some ES6 implementations, and there are quite a few workarounds for some older browsers (though, that's something that every good dev needs to learn).
The book has good pace and is compartmentalized well so as not to overwhelm you. This book is not for beginners but if you are wanting to challenge yourself I think a beginner having a background with at least some computer science can figure it out.
Most other books I did not buy in print. These I did. They are not unnecessarily large and the content is structured in a way that you can read away from a computer. If you have a team of Developers, DEFINITELY get it in print. If you are a freelancer enjoy in either format. Hope this review helps you. KEEP LEARNING!
That being said, this book is definitely not for beginners. However, I suppose if you really want, if you've build something in JS before, you can first skim over the parts you don't get, then go online and learn about them...THEN COME BACK TO THIS BOOK. This stuff is great.
With the extremely clear and well presented material in this book, I was to quickly create the appropriate classes for my game application and hook them all together. Now of course I see how I would have benefited from using class-based coding patterns much earlier, but I must admit living in a functional world (like I used to long ago in the REXX days) was a delight. But now I'm sold, and its due to this clear and wise author. Thanks Stoyan.
