      Comments about oreilly Learning Node, 2nd Edition:

      I have a background as Java/Grails developer. I was looking for good and updated introductory book on Node just to expand my knowledge base and walk my first steps in MEAN Stack.

      Reading "Learning Node" I got a great and complete introduction and now I'm feeling in an intermediate level and ready for my next step: Express.js
