This book introduces you to Node, the new web development framework written in JavaScript. You'll learn hands-on how Node makes life easier for experienced JavaScript developers: not only can you work on the front end and back end in the same language, you'll also have more flexibility in choosing how to divide application logic between client and server.

Really unorganized and outdated. It doesn't even offer you an overall picture of Node.
Konstantin Root
Dont waste your time reading this "book" - its in development since end of Dec 2010, so its usage is already not in line with reality.
On top of that i found following major problems:
1) Very chaotic structure of the content
2) Unfinished content
3) From 206 pages only first 85 are original content - API section is just outdated copy of documentation from

Avoid this book - you could get much better value by reading "Node for Front-End Developers" and API docs from

I skimmed this rather quickly, focusing on the earlier parts to get the "big picture" stuff about patterns for dealing with the asynchronous callbacks and non-blocking IO kind of stuff. Later chapters that survey specific modules and such are more likely to be outdated now and were not as immediately useful to me.

Una buona introduzione all'ambiente di Node.js.

Purtroppo per l'autore (ma per fortuna per Node), lo sviluppo del software procede a una velocità incredibile, quindi alcune informazioni in questo libro iniziano già ad essere datate.

Inoltre molti argomenti vengono solo introdotti, e non approfonditi, generando anche confusione.
I'm not yet finished. It seems like an easy way to get into Node but I miss depth and a better structure. In my eyes it's for novice developers. Any other developer can get most of the information in less time out of the official webpage without big problems. Sadly as I was very eager to read this book. Let's see if I can finish it :\

Well constructed, fast-paced introduction to Node.js. If you've got even a little bit of background in JavaScript, this book will provide a step-by-step guide through the essential components and characteristics of Node.

I pretty much agree with the other reviews here. This book shows plenty of examples and is a decent introduction to the Node.js core and design concepts, but its "API reference" is woefully unorganized and incomplete.

Good overview of Node. Needs an update.
