The book provides a discussion of the functional capabilities of JavaScript both built into the language and achievable through language constructs.
It manages to introduce a lot of concepts in just about 130 pages although hastily and with rather brief explanations.
Some parts turn out to be cryptic and obscure, especially to someone not already versed in functional programming.

Chapter 3 provides an overview of existing functional JavaScript libraries; however the space devoted to each is quite i

It's a great book. Very concise and up to the point. Dan is using real JavaScript code to show how everything works, so you can see how everything works under the hood, instead of rely on existing libraries. He also provides real examples. What I also like that he is not saying that FP is the only way of doing programming, but he says that both OOP and FP has their own purpose and it's very hard to write whole application in FP, he provides real example how to use them both.

Poorly written, low quality

The prose is very verbose, unfocused, and filled with spelling errors. I purchased the Ebook which is very poorly formatted with bad line breaks in the code examples and lots of random blank pages throughout. Perhaps with some tight editing it could be significantly improved, but in its current state the Ebook is practically unreadable. I'm really disappointed because I need to learn about this topic.
