Under "Creating the Package File" he discusses the package.json file, but then refers to it twice more in the same paragraph as the project.json file. One I was familiar with - I figured the other was some Angular extension to node.js, but no, it's just sloppy editing.
Then he has you type in a 30 line HTML file - just pure HTML. "That's how the app is going to look - now delete all that HTML in the file and replace it with <todo-app>Angular placeholder</todo-app> Thanks for being respectful of my time!
Finally, in the last iteration of the app, he references the TodoItem class in both the component and the template - but doesn't provide any instruction or sample code to add the TodoItem to the model created earlier. Again - app doesn't work.
If this how he presents as your first Angular application, I will not attempt to execute any subsequent examples. It's unlikely I will even attempt to finish the book - if the text can't be trusted what is the point.
However, Freeman's writing is clear and the listings are great. If the reader diagrams chapter 2 and takes a lot of notes while studying chapters 11 through the end of the book, this could be a decent way of learning Angular 2.
It's hard to get past the fact that there is (no exaggeration) a typo or mangled sentence on nearly every other page in just the first chapter.
