If you're wanting to learn Node.js and know absolutely nothing about it, I think this is a great place to start. Actually, I think Learn Node.js Completely and with Confidence is an even better place to start ('Step 3' is to read this book!).

Great book for someone just starting out their journey. The book was my first encounter with functional programming paradigm and although it wasn't sufficient for me to learn it appropriately, it worked as an introduction which prepared me to go for intermediate books about the topic.

The author should write poetry instead of technical books. Too much text compared to the amount of information about node. The author promised a full application at the end of the book, but instead of giving at least one example of some kind of test for his code, he explains what a router or request handler is for. Good to know other books about node, because from them I know mocha, should, and assertions. No one example in this book. That reminds me to all this shitty 'write your blog in 5 minu...more

Very nice overview of Node.js.
For someone with some experience with JS, and with other backend languages, this book was perhaps slightly oversimplified, but it has still given me a basic understanding of the concepts needed. While it hasn't prepared me to make my own applications, it has brought my level up to a point where a fully sized Node.js book will no longer be a daunting prospect.
You can sit and read this book in a day, and I think it accomplishes exactly the goal it is trying to.
It's a pretty decent and useful book, but I feel it is a little bit too short. Most importantly, it introduced http module, which is fine; but it did not mention express at all. I wasted some time on http module for not knowing the existence of express. I'd suggest the author mention that there is a high-level module named express before starting on any low level modules.

This is a solid couple of hour crash course for generic Node.js concepts. The author did an alright job showing how blocking works, how to think about callbacks in general, and some of the features. The book reminds me some of Learn X the Hard Way without enough exercises.
I'd recommend this book if you have absolutely no experience with Node.js. If you have a general grasp on blocking, callbacks, npm, require, and exports then you might be able to skip this. While the book doesn't go into any g...more
This book provides a very basic introduction to build a web app with Node.js. As the author admits at the start of the book it's a brief introduction.
For me personally, this book didn't tell me anything that I didn't know about Node.js. Except that I can now advice this book to other people who hardly know anything about Node.js.
So, if you barely know (or maybe not even) what Node.js is and want to learn the basics, this book is for you. It covers the most important concepts as Node's event arch...more
It was an okay introduction. Fairly easy to get through. I think I had an older version and wish mine was more up to date. I like the way the author writes, and his examples are pretty clear to follow. Good for an absolute beginner like me to get interested in Node, but doesn't go into a whole lot of detail. I went to get his Node Craftsman book at the stated discount of $5 (which admittedly had expired long ago) and the book is selling on the site for $23 with no place for a discount code. HOWE...more

The book is aimed at people who can program and want a quick introduction to node. After a hello world in Node routing, callbacks and how node work are described. Finally an application that allows text input and file upload is deve...more

I thought it was a pretty good introduction to Node. But only useful if you've never done anything in Node before since there's not a lot of material here. I think it's best suited to someone just starting out. But if you've got some experience, then you can probably start with something more advanced.
I had already found a useful website on Node called howtonode.org and used the article 'Blog rolling with mongoDB, express and Node.js'.
Actually, if you've done...more
A very good introduction to Node.js. The book is one large tutorial, that will run you through the essential concepts of node. It is quite fast to do the tutorial, and it proposes a very nice, and quite correct way to structure your code in node.
Personally, I would recommend that you do this tutorial and use it for a personal project shortly after. The code is very good, and it will get you a good starting point for a project (especially if you do not intend to use Express, for example)
A good introduction to Node.js. I was able to pick this up free through a promotion. At less than 50 pages, I can't say it's worth more than a few dollars. That said, it's definitely one of the better introductions to Node that I've read. It probably helps that I am very close to the author's target audience ('This document will probably fit best for readers that have a background similar to my own: experienced with at least one object-oriented language like Ruby, Python, PHP or Java, only littl...more
To the point and just the right book for a node beginner like myself!
The next step for me was TutsPulus.com's great course about node.js: 'An Introduction to Node.js' in which you will learn how to create your own node modules and publish them to npm, as well as using mongodb and socket.io to build real-time web apps. Check it out, it's a great next step ;) !

A very good meant for beginners. You end up developing a simple PNG file uploader. A very basic application, but in the process I learn about writing the webserver, node modules and some basic technologies.
If you know programming in language and understand basics of HTTP communication, you are good to go with this book to start with and then delve deeper using other books and / or online documents and community.

This book teaches you poor practices like dependency injection, and isn't very node-y at all. Would not recommend to beginners. The author was not experienced enough at the time this book was written to be teaching others how to take their first steps.

Good introduction to node.js. Short, concise and to the point. The example code is useful and teaches important concepts.
A great book for those who need the KISS method (keep it simple stupid) to learn new things. I have been a PHP programmer for a few years now, and making the switch in my head was difficult, this book was a great help though!
The only reason it's not five stars is because I wish it were longer!

A nice, if short, introduction to node.js and server side reviews. I read it in an hour on the train on the way to work this morning, and it covers some simple concepts like blocking vs non-blocking and dependency injection well.
If you know anything about node, this book would be a waste of your time. However, if you've never worked with it before and are trying to figure out how to structure your code, then I would highly recommend it.
Good introduction to somebody who knows nothing about node.js.
Assumes you have little knowledge of node.js and a competent knowledge of programming.
The author should fix a few typos and revise the wording in some paragraphs to make them easier to read.
Might be considered as a decent introduction, but I have found the breadth to be too shallow even for an introductory text.

Good book especially for newbies. The method used (learning by doing a project) is very efficient. 5 stars

Decent intro book, didn't like the 'There's probably a better way, but this will work for now' approach.
Very good overview of NodeJS. I was able to work through and understand this book much better than any of the tutorials I've found on the net.

Needed an express introduction to NodeJS. It was good, but not spectacular.
