I bought the book based on good reviews, but I'm feeling a bit dumb for not digging deeper. Yes, it has helped me learn node somewhat, but I feel there are better resources currently. If the author would release an update, the book could regain its former glory.

It starts off with examples of manipulating the local file system using Node.js. This struck me a little odd as the only thing I tend to use the local file system for is reading configuration files. If I need to write a file I tend to put it in Amazon S3. However, this is genius and looking at how to manipulate the filesystem gives some useful insights into Node.js programming.
The final chapter covers writing a web application with a single page front end and authentication. This is the only place the book falls down. Too much is covered in two short a chapter. It’s still quite useful though.
Ps I have a helicopter
One thing that has made my learning more difficult is the fact that some codes in the book are not up-to-date. I could manage it with the help of other readers in the publisher's website.
This author manages, in not many pages, to open your eyes about what you should be aware of with node, and what your possibilities are.
I went into the book expecting to learn about node web sites. The book covers that in a couple of chapters, but before that he explores much more server-side stuff like tcp and messaging for example.
This isn't a reference book and doesn't pretend to be so: it's an eye-opener and a direction indicator, and very good for that.
Até o final, quase, cada código é muito bem apresentado e explicado, mas nos capítulos finais, quando o assunto passa a ser HTTP, o livro acelera demais e os conceitos de criação de um server acabam sendo vistos muito por cima.
Vale a pena para entender mais a fundo Node.js.
