The material is good.
By M. Nahorniak
The material is good. Would be 5 stars if it was proofed better. I came from only having an introductory course in Angular and LOVE the style this book is written in: Small, working examples.
If you need to learn Angular, get this book. Its clear demonstration by example. There is no 'getting lost in the details' S the author stays on track, which keeps me on track. This will be a good reference to keep on hand as well. If you're an MVC, or specifically, a dot.Net MVC developer, you'll probably appreciate Angular and how well its explained here. A few typos aside, I learned Angular.Js with this book.

Teaches AngularJS using an easy to understand layered approach. Two thumbs up!
Istvan does a great job of building up knowledge of Angular JS in very appropriate stages. He starts with the basics and has you create a primitive diving log application and then has you progressively improving the application while connecting that back to important concepts. It is a well written book and I'd recommend it to anyone trying to learn Angular JS.

Best Book To Learn AngularJS!!
I love this book... Actually, this is the best book I purchased for learning a new development language/package since I purchased Oracle Presses Java 8 Beginner's guide. I don't usually don't write many reviews on books but this I had to... I had purchased a few AngularJS books and out of all of them this is the clear winner. Before this I was using "Learning AngularJS" by Brad Daley and I must say it was a nightmare. Nothing seemed to make sense and I was having a lot of trouble gripping AngularJS in general. Then I said wait let me try this book... It help so much and it even showed me how to create a live-server from nodeJS which allowed is a serious time saver. But back to the book. If you want to grapple and learn AngularJS this is the book to use. I'm sure I will be going back and forth in this book just like I did with the Intro to Java 8 book I purchased. I just kept pounding the easy to follow code and explanations without a hitch and worked them over and over again until it clicked. The other books for AngularJS I have aren't quite so easy to follow and read more like bad car stereo instructions. I just wanted to put my 10 cents in and give a good rating for it. (I'm not even done with it and have learned so much). One thing I like is he uses jQuery and Bootstrap to dial your SPA elements which is great since I'm a bootstrap fanatic. The source code is freely available to download and is great for any errors you might make (mine are usually typos here and there). But the Unravelling series book really breaks things down without give you the long encyclopedia definitions and explanations using terms you either don't know yet or make no sense yet. It really puts in into layman's terms.
My recommendation to learn AngularJS is to grab a copy of this book. It's working out for me in a area of coding I was having trouble with and I'm an experienced programmer moving onto Web Development now.
