    * I was a reviewer on this book *.

    When I reviewed this book, I learnt tons of stuff on Google Polymer whereas I was using it for months ! The author is giving the reader the basics, and then, every thing you need to out-perform Google Polymer.

    The examples, especially the music platform we are learning to do, are great, and simple.

    I am pretty sure that you can find every things you need, from the basics of material design, to the best uses of Polymer.
