There is one problem due to changes made to Node.js launch for Express/Mongoose since the date of publication. I'd recommend skipping the getting started instructions in the book (chapter 1) and use this web site instead, especially if you are running with MS Windows:
I found the above URL after following the book's instructions, step-by-step (using Windows 7) and couldn't get Express to fire up. Other than that, I'd recommend using this book for anyone who wants to get started writing highly responsive web based/mobile applications.
I think as a book on mongoose it could do more on how to handle embeded documents. What's the best way to design Complex Schema's. It barely touched some of those items.
It adds a little more background, setup details, and follows a consistent "Project Management" application scenario, which may make it helpful to illustrate the mongoose concepts.
I would read the online guide first.
The ongoing example is also well chosen, and well used to integrate the various concepts into a complete working application. It uses Express to build the application, and while the explanations in the book are very clear and complete, a basic understanding of the key concepts of the Express framework (routes, request, response objects) is useful to really understand what is going on.
As mentioned by others, the installation instructions are a little out of date, but this can very easily be solved with a simple web search.
