It seems I really don't know the JS. The book is not just reference book for ES6, it also explains the why the feature exists and the common pitfalls when using them. I will need to read some parts again to understand better.

By the way, The author knows vanilla JS very well :) I can see some examples from old days. Ugly but it was the only way at that time...

Content was very detailed with great examples. I only lose a star as it grew tedious every nth paragraph either said refer to the other book in the series OR this topic will be covered in a later chapter. A footnote or reference initially would suffice.

Þessi bók er alger snilld. Einhverra hluta vegna dagaði hún uppi á lestrarborðinu hjá mér, en ég hafði samt af að klára hana. Efnið er vissulega mis-þurrt, en holl lesning hverjum sem hefur áhuga á að koma sér inn í þær breytingar sem fylgja ES6 útgáfunni.

Loved it.

This book is very clear and has many examples to show the concepts and ideas. From start to the end it first explains the tricky staff and later after many discussions it shows you the right way or the recommended way to write your code and things to watch out for.

The only reason I give this four stars instead of five has nothing to do with the book and everything to do with me. It was over my head at times (I am too much of a Javascript newbie). I am not qualified to judge the stuff that I did not understand. So I can't say it's all 5-star and I won't say it's less than 4 star.

The author has one verbal tic which (used in moderation) is not a bad thing but when used to excess gets tiresome (so I learned while reading this book): the use of the word "Consi

You really don't know JS until you read this book. At least for me. The book covered almost all aspects of ES6/ES7 very clearly.
