An absolute must for everyone working with Closure on real-world projects. There are no other books on Closure anyways and this one is indeed not bad and comprehensive. It covers "the whole package" of library, compiler ... and how it all works together.

The main problem I have with this book is that it is partly written as a reference (e.g. lots of pages covering library functions one after the other) and partly as a tutorial (e.g. about ui components). Of course this makes it imperfect in both.
Before reading this book, I hacked around on Google Closure and got some results from exploring their web site. This book really filled in a lot of the gaps in information that was missing from the API specs such as how to implement a login dialog. I would not have been able to implement version 2 of this beta had it not been for this book.
Great programming book. Teaches how to develop large-scale applications using JavaScript.
