    Comments about oreilly Angular 2 Cookbook:

    "Flight Security Restrictions to Include Insults, Mean Faces"
    "Belching Choir Begins World Tour"
    "Maternity Ward Resorts to Rock Paper Scissors Following Baby Mixup"

    These are just a few of the hilarious and original easter eggs that are sprinkled liberally throughout this gem of a book. It would not even be fair to compare this to other technical reference books. Rarely have I seen reference book so incredibly approachable, yet technically deep. The cookbook format an excellent way to structure the book, as it makes dipping in and out for just what you need very quick. Not only that, but the writing style is very friendly, and as I mentioned above, laugh out loud funny at times.

    Another huge bonus to this book is that the author has painstakingly put every code sample in the book online in a runnable plunker on the companion site. You can just open up that website to tinker and hack with examples right away without having to do any cloning or set up.
