    Comments about oreilly AngularJS Web Application Development Cookbook:

    I've read a number of books on Angular when I first started exploring it and I find this book invaluable now for dipping into when I want to refresh my knowledge on a specific area. It covers a wide variety of aspects in AngularJS, you will find something of use whatever your application type.

    If web development is something you are just starting to explore I particularly like how it also includes sections discussing application structure, testing, and common Javascript and HTML5 concepts.

    You can read the book in two ways - cover to cover with each section complementing the others, or dip in and out of it looking specifically at a section that interests you right now. The writing style is easy and supports both, with each 'recipe' being self contained and easily digestible.

    The book also caters both for someone new to Angular, or if you are coming to Angular after already using it or reading other material. It explains how different areas fit together well so is helpful to build up a more general overview, then dives into specifics when you need them.

    Out of all the books I have, this book gets opened the most as my 'one stop shop' when I need to look something up.

      Comments about oreilly AngularJS Web Application Development Cookbook:

      There was this sale on Packt and I had my quota of book budget with me, so I bought it. I didn't spend much time reading through what this book offers. I purchased it based on the fact that usually Cook Books by Packt are awesome, to the point and contains hard-core information.

      When I started reading this book, it actually came upto my expectations.

      I was particularly interested in learning about recipes for Animation and Performance optimization, though I think they should have covered performance a bit more. The only thing missing from the book was recipes for debugging the application and making it fault tolerant, but I think author can get away with this as this could be extremely application domain specific topic.

      Overall, must have for any client side javascript programmer.
