5This book will save your time, a lot!
By mrGott
When you start with Magento you need a good handout, all-in-one resource that gets you started. Magento 2 Development Cookbook includes great recipes. After checking out the contents of the book I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it and put those recipes to work.
In my opinion a great book is the one that covers all the basics, gives you good solid ground and code that will help you get started.
Magento 2 Development Cookbook includes great recipes. It was very important to take a look on how to build a shipping module for Magento 2. Most of my clients use Georgian Post as their primary shipping method, hence I need a custom shipping module. And once again I would like to thank the author. None of the articles I have read have bothered to explain as much as this cookbook does. And the part I loved most was having ability to add Tracking Number. Actually it’s all you need with the shipping module.
I also believe that this is a kind of a book that has to always stay on your desk or desktop, depending on whether it’s a hard copy or PDF. I’ll be using this as a handout which I’ll refer to in every single project, every time I’ll be building a theme or a module from ground up.
I think that this one will be a good investment for anyone who wants to get started with Magento 2. It will help you right away, and will be helpful each time you are cooking for Magento 2.
Last but not least, I have to mention - “who is this book for”?
Magento 2 Development Cookbook covers lots of “how to do” stuff. I believe this book is for anyone. It’s for beginners and experienced developers. This book concentrates on code and specific examples. For me, as a developer it’s always more efficient to take a look at a code and read it. Eventually this book will save your time, a lot!

5Great introduction
By ERIK THE READER
It's a great introduction to Magento 2 development environment especially because Magento 2 is the new version of this ecommerce platform and it's not backwards compatible with the Magento 1 versions. This means that we have a gamechange and many things we have to relearn in order to update our clients' sites to this new version. The first chapter tackles this process in case of the sample data site. Of course still few sites run Magento 2 but it's good idea to stay ahead with practical advices. This cookbook will save you time!

5Quick introduction
By Marius Dermiaha
From this book you should start learning Magento 2. I especially recommend it to people who are experienced Magento 1 and who want to quickly master new Magento version. In explaining the mechanisms Magento 2 often refers to their counterparts in the previous version. The book is written concisely and concretely. With things that could be improved it is in Chapter 6. "Magento Backend" in context of the creation of grid also adding CRUD operations associated with it and handle the relationship database. In summary, currently it is the best book of the basics Magento 2 for developers.
