1) It is touching a lot of technologies, frameworks and ways of development that you can explore afterwards more deeply.
2) The author is experienced and he knows what he is talking about
3) The way that this book is written, I haven't read better written book that is lite to read and educational.
My biggest problem with the book other than the fact that the title is extremely misleading The level it is written at confuses me, I would expect that anyone who could follow the book is already familiar with the contents.
If you are looking for an overview of common frameworks this book may be for you.
If you are looking to push the limits of JS look elsewhere.
The book provides you with a good coverage, however, brief of various elements of JS tools that you should be aware of. This would get the beginner/intermediate person past knowing just JS as a language but the tools you should start to understand to look into other areas o help with development. Should you know Node.js? Is that pushing the limits? I hardly think so, especially in my opinion most modern enterprise software is still developed with Java as a backend and not with Node. Using Node doesn't mean you are advanced or pushing limits. But hey, that's my opinion and experience. Node has great potential but then you should get a book on Node.js and not this one.
The book also talks about MongoDB, WebSockets, CSS preprocessing, some HTML5, but all in not great depth but enough to get a taste of what they are about and have some judgement about them.
