Must-have angular recipe reference
By Diwank Singh
When I was first looking for thorough angular.js examples and recipes in the wild, I was mightily disappointed with the scant resources available and was almost turned off by angular for this very reason. This book really fixed that for me and became a start for me to dive in further.
What I really like about this book is how the author dives in each of the example, elaborating each example code and makes it easy to understand what's going on (book comes with the source code which you can download). The recipes are a real problem solving experience in real world scenarios which helped me to critically think about the way angular can lend itself to problem-solving.
As my understanding of angular.js deepened and I had a chance to write some real world projects with it, I found myself going back to this book again and again. The author has done a masterful job of breaking down the various angular.js concepts and showing numerous examples of how to use each one with common gotchas. I think that this book does a great job as a reference "cookbook".
I refer to the book all the time as I work on my angular.js projects. I would recommend this book to anyone building angular projects and even frontend developers simply looking to explore the latest technologies in the space. If practice makes you stronger, this book should be in your shelf or digital reader.

Code examples for the win
By Ben C
The author explains each of the concepts using commented code examples. Doing so makes it really easy to follow, because each example builds one small concept, and it's written in a way to focus on the code itself.
The author also has put each example on JSFiddle. I've been messing with them, which has been super helpful.
I've tried other books and tutorials before this, and understanding Angular has been a struggle. But so far, this book has been very helpful.

Still one of the best
By Anonymous User
Still one of the premier texts available for AngularJS 1. You'll find yourself coming back to this to use as a reference text, and the book's structure makes it easy to get in, find what you need, and apply it.
