This is a VERY big book, almost A4 in size! There are plenty of code snippet on almost every page and the style of writing is easy enough to follow. The organisation of the book itself is bad, there is NO index in the back of the book and no clear chapter seperations. I'm only part way through the huge book and it seems reasonable. There is plenty of information but no clear structure. In the early stages it does show bad examples only to mention later in the book there will be a better way. I prefer to see the right way from the start, especially when trying to learn a new technology rather than learning and re-learning the proper way later on.

It would have been much better to have an overview and clear explaination of the terminology and a diagram or two showing how it all fits together. I can't help thinking this isn't the best book to learn Angular from and yet again it isn't very good as a reference for Angular (due to the lack of index or clear structuring of chapters and content).

I suggest looking for some free online tutorials/videos before you buy the book, or perhaps look at other book reviews first.

Having spent many hours scouring forums and blogs in an attempt to break into the world of AngularJs, it's nice to finally have all the basic information here in one big book.

ng-book covers the basic mechanics of AngularJs, and many related topics such as security, available extensions to the framework, and even suggestions for directory structure and environment setup.

A great place to start (note: previous development experience is required, particularly with Javascript and web based technologies), and an invaluable reference for those people with previous experience of AngularJs.

If you already know AngularJS and want to pick up bits and pieces of things you might not know, then randomly flicking through the book would be the way to read it. The content is quite disorganised, for example, it uses Directives before explaining what they are.

This book is designed as an electronic book and references examples on jus fiddle using short urls. The book is hard to follow and full of angular jargon which makes for some incomprehensible chapters. It's probably the largest book I've ever received even without the linked examples. It's ok as a reference but they really need to cut down the jargon and provide better explanations. Certainly not worth 20 quid, may be the best of a bad bunch though.

Absolutely NO INDEX! Useless for reference / lookup!
I wanted a book that explained the general structure of Angularjs from the ground up - this book promised to fill that need.
I am still left needing and hence would not term this book "The Complete...".

This really is an excellent book, covering AngularJS in great depth, but also its use with many of the Javascript stack tools and technologies such as Node.js, Express, MongoDB, Grunt, Bower, Yeoman, plus there are chapters on creating mobile apps and Chrome extensions.

It's a physically big book, but well written and very readable, and is pitched at a level, gradually introducing the more complex material, that would suit a beginner who is comfortable with Javascript, whilst not being too tedious for those who already have a reasonable grasp of the subject matter and are just looking to expand that knowledge and put it all nicely in context. If you were to read it cover to cover, you'd almost certainly come away very well versed in AngularJS and the ecosystem which it inhabits.

I own quite a few books on AngularJS, many focusing on specific aspects of the framework, but this covers everything nicely, and you'd have no problem if it were your only book on the subject. In fact, you may find it easier to learn from this single, coherent, authoritative resource, than the multiple sources of varying quality and style which are out there.
