I also love the way that the contributors' personalities come through in their respective chapters. It gives this book a particularly human quality that most technical books lack.
Each chapter has little surprises/special things about it that I enjoy...just buy the book it's awesome
This book is part of the well known "Beautiful *" O'Reilly series. I read most of them and they gave me deeper insights and new ideas.
In a significant departure from the other books in the series, this book is quite short, enlisting 15 (fifteen) contributors.
[Why do both other two reviewer say 14 (fourteen)? Didn't they read the book? Didn't they count Kovaliov's nice chapter?]
The 15 chapters are more reminiscent of the high quality articles sported by great magazines like the late Dr. Dobb's Journal, than of the more self contained essays that make the other books in the series.
Unfortunately, the publisher didn't make this clear enough in the book presentation (unless the all lowercase "/theory/in/practice" on the front cover is meant to mark the difference).
The printing quality is poor, at least in my copy: the characters borders are not neat, this is not a problem with the monospaced font used in listings, but reading the paragraph of regular text was eye-straining.
The content is undoubtedly solid and wise, and I appreciated that sometimes different authors convey healthily different views. However, I didn't met in this book the breath taking beauty that I met in quite a few chapters of other books of the series.
To my surprise half of the text is not really JS specific, it states solid principles that could (should!) be applied to programming in whatever language. This is not to say that this content is not relevant or useful, it was however hardly new.
OTOH, part of the JS specific content proved mostly introductory to known aspects of JS language or ecosystem, at least to me.
- is this a "Beautiful *" book? Not really, two stars
- is the content solid and useful to an audience? Sure, five stars
- is the price adequate for the book? No, it's excessive, the right street price should be around 20 Euros, two stars
Average: three stars and half, rounded up to four.
I discovered this book via social media, I spotted a few great contributors among its authors, and preordered it. I didn't pay attention to its size, I didn't chase for a table of contents on the publisher's site, I simply assumed it was another thick and juicy book in the well known O'Reilly "Beautiful <you name it>" series.
I just received it, and to my dismay, it's a significantly thinner book than I expected: it's in the same price range of other books in the series (even more in Europe) while sporting no more than one third of the pages.
Now, I have to read it, in the hope that, while thinner than other books in the series, it has a much higher specific juice. I'll be back.
