L. Spencer isn't shy about "do's and don'ts", which is very helpful in forming your own programming style.
- Part II is dedicated to the discussion of proper implementation of select patterns in JS. For each pattern, I was happy to see a section on how to unit test (with many of the introductions written as “Understanding the Pattern Through Unit Tests”), representing the commitment this book takes to TDD.
- Part IV and V cover miscellaneous topics and then a well written summary that will be useful when I go back to this book to remind myself what the book said about x, without needing to re-read entire chapters.
If I can give a tip, as you go through this book, actually type out the examples and run them just like he says. You'll get so much more out of it. It's like a musician practices riffs and scales because it engrains the location of the notes and instills the patterns in your muscle memory. Following along with this book will do the same for you as a developer. You will come away with the tendency to write tests first and then code.
