I wasn't looking for perfect or exhaustive. I was looking for the ability to understand where "Node.js" would fit in a conversation with colleagues, and "What Is Node" delivered.
There's a great explanation of the round-trip JSON problem plus converters (small events), and I liked the "medium-event" perspective regarding the web. At the same time, McLaughlin warns us about "inertia of familiarity" (aka functional fixedness), which is all too common in IT (probably because of the complexity of solutions and the effort involved in learning how to use the latest "hammer.") Not all web servers should be run with node.js (and not all forms should be submitted with ajax, etc.). If you visit the MEANJS web site, you won't get this perspective and you could be taking a huge risk.
We need more books with this kind of professional engineering perspective (strengths and weaknesses).
It felt as if when we were just getting started it ended. Made me wonder if I had been reading a sample chapter of a larger book all along.
I gave it 4 stars because the images/figures for illustrating, do not provide function to zoom in or browse full screen. With all the various screen sizes and form factors, it does retract from the overall experience. I fought with the images... pinching, double tapping, tap and hold to no avail. I felt foolish for trying something that is pretty much expected and standard.

It does a good job condensing rather a good amount of information, but most of is easily found over the net.
