Nicholas did a great job of going into detail of ECMAScript 2015. Would be great if he used more ES6 syntax in his own code examples when given the chance but it wasn't a big problem. ...more

One of the better ES6 learning materials out there.

It's fairly short and simply straight to the point.

In my opinion, book has a slight imbalance of text and code examples. It could use more of the later and improve with a bit more realistic examples.
