Book Review: AngularJS by Shyam Seshadri (O'Reilly)

Although many readers may have been disappointed by the code examples in this book from the outdated Github site, I think overall this is a good book. AngularJS concepts are a bit difficult to comprehend for any beginner but this book does a decent job of easing the reader into it. More advanced readers, especially those who are impatient, may get a bit disappointed at the pace of this book.

It takes a completely different mindset, no matter how fluent you are with web application programming, to understand the "Angular Paradigm".  It is going to take time to grasp the concepts if you are learning Angular for the first time, no matter how well it is presented. It is certainly not the fault of this book if you get a cultural programming shock.

The ideas and examples provided in the later part of the book are very useful and I would be using some of them for my applications.
