Intro to Practical Modern Web Development
No knowledge of NodeJS is necessary -- I had none and was able to follow along and make my own little app. I would also estimate that (a lot) more space was used in this book covering web development in general than Node and Express in particular.

Very Good Introduction to Node/Express
By R. Bowman
While there are many web tutorials for Node and Express many seem to have been written by people who had figured out something that worked for them after trial and error. Brown's approach is more systematic and I prefer some of the choices he made like Handlebars rather than the more complex templating schemes. i was particularly impressed by the chapter on best practices that is placed very early in the book. I am looking at Node for a new product and would like to get my team started off right.

Good Coverage of Multi-Page Websites Using Node-Related Tools
The book offers a lot of concept coverage and it's code implementations are mostly concerned with delivering dynamic content via multi-page websites. Since it is more high-level, topics are usually thoroughly introduced, benefits are well explained, and then there are brief code implementations and conclusions.
There are typos scattered throughout but they do not obstruct the lesson meaning--just a little annoying. I also found the "Meadowlark Travel Website" to be distracting. After getting my grips in the first few chapters, I found myself jumping around in the book and did not care as much about digesting the travel website details. I think it would be more instructional to just use different model scenarios that make implementation concepts more clear and concise.
The main weakness of this book, I feel, is primary focus on dynamic multi-page website back-end. If you are wanting to develop a single-page/lean API perspective, the content of this book will not quite fit.
