I highly recommend the reading.
If you are looking for a comprehensive look at the Jasmine testing framework look elsewhere. This book spends a lot of time talking about getting Jasmine to run against your code in a bunch of different ways, but spends precious few pages on the hows, whys, dos, and don'ts of testing with Jasmine. There is good content that talk about those things, but far too much time is spent on setting up Jasmine itself and not enough about using it.
I would have much preferred if they gave you the example Node project with a bare test suite, and then taught Jasmine from there, rather than spending time running you through quick introductions to several frameworks and basic ways of testing them.
Overall take the description very literally, you will spend pages learning about React, Node, Webpack, the ES6 module system, Karma, writing bare AJAX requests, and other things that aren't Jasmine. I'd say this book tried to land between the beginner and the intermediate developer but failed to complete a good Jasmine overview for either.
What's really great is that the author takes it further - by refactoring the "application" to use Backbone.js. If you've ever wondered how to do in-depth testing of Backbone views, or how to test event hooks between views and models, this book covers that.
Bottom line: if you are using jasmine - this is a great resource. If you are using Jasmine and Backbone - this is a must read.
