By Amazon Customer
Love the writing style and the clear examples in this book. The code actually works! So many development books I buy are riddled with typos, yet this book is almost typo-free. What a refreshing change! Love the Big Nerd Ranch series.

5Good book
By Nerraga
I like that the authors step the reader through various projects that increase in complexity. There are a couple of quirks (I was using x-select 3.0 in the ember chapters and encountering some strange issues before realizing I needed to be using 2.0.x), but they're easy enough to figure out if you take the time to look.

5Definitely worth your money and time
By E. Price
This book was very useful and worth the price. The beginning of the book was massively helpful. They spent a lot of time on Ember indoctrination towards the end of the book which I could have done without (and I would have liked to see other topics covered) but it was interesting to see how a system like that works. There were also some bugs towards the end of the book so I'm looking forward to the next edition. That being said, this book definitely deserves 5 stars and is worth buying even with it's issues.
