I belive this book is a nice tip for who is interested in learn the three tools that is in book's title.

This book covers three great JavaScript based technologies very well from an introductory standpoint: Node, MongoDB, and Backbone. It doesn't go into much depth with any of them, but does manage to build a nice simple example of a social network.

Still recommended though as a practical introductory book.
Decent job explaining some core concepts, but didn't go into as much detail add I'd like for some. planning on reading the author's Up and Running next.
