This book is awesome.
on September 15, 2013
I have been through this book multiple times. I read it cover to cover on a plane / camping trip, then came home and went through it again actually doing the examples on a computer. Normally I find that intro books only skim the surface and I have a hard time actually using anything i learn in less trivial instances. This wasn't the case with this book. Some chapters give a very in depth overview, then the exercises at the end are very helpful.
Other reviewers have complained about typos in the source code. I noticed a few, but I type the code examples, instead of copy paste and generally can spot them. I didn't run into anything that didn't work, with the exception of the Twitter API chapter. But that's because of changes on the Twitter side, not the fault of this book.
I definitely recommend this book to anyone interested in node.
