Further, this book spends a lot of time explaining how to do things the hard way. It demonstrates terribly messy page controllers and routers that will quickly grow to unsustainable size without once mentioning industry standard tools such as Express that are meant to avoid these problems. If you follow this book's example, you'll end up with a bloated but well archtected app that wastes lots of code space and is a nightmare to maintain.
Finally, the book suffers several small grammatical errors. Normally, I wouldn't note this, but in a technical manual non-parsing sentences can lead to misinterpretation.
It is also worth noting that this book does not once mention ES6 or any of the major changes that are now supported.
I recommend this book only to people who already understand node well but want a guided approach to solving some core concepts they may have missed such as TDD, restful design, or real-time chat.
