"Finally, a book that teaches that Node.js is much more than a bare-bones webscale application server for hipsters."

There are some issues with the code and module versions too. It mostly came down to needing to be 100% sure that you're using the same versions of the modules used when the book was written and not the current versions, but in a twist one of the bits of code required the dev release of node as the current version still doesn't support generator functions. Ultimately it was really good practice to have to debug bits of code, figure out version issues, read through the docs online etc... but I have friends that I wouldn't recommend this book to because they would be stumped when the code didn't work first time.
So coming out the other side of this book I feel like I understand a lot more about node and I MIGHT be able to wrangle what I learned here into a working project, but I'm left feeling pretty green still. It's like a beginner book, that isn't particularly aimed at beginners.
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.
