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.
