Node.js. It’s the latest in a long line of “Are you cool enough to use me?” programming languages, APIs, and toolkits. In that sense, it lands squarely in the tradition of Rails, and Ajax, and Hadoop, and even to some degree iPhone programming and HTML5.

As long as you're clear what this is, I think it delivers on it. It's basically a 30 minute read about what Node is and when/why you would use it. It doesn't teach you Node, but it doesn't purport to do so either. Plus it's free (at least it was when I got it). If I'd paid more than $1 for it, then I'd probably give it 1 star.

This may as well have been an article in some webpage. Very good lecture though. Also i got it for free on amazon so no complains on the price. If you are a bit curious about nodejs, have half an hour free and you can get it for free go ahead and read it.

Nice introduction to Node.js

Certainly explained the reason for using Node.js, but left me wanting to learn more.
Basic introduction to the Node.js technology. A nice and short read, up to the point.

Seems too short though for such a technology, hence the 3 stars.
Good introduction for the first thing you ever read about Node. It gives you a solid start and points you in right direction to continue.
