This short book is very readable and the author raises some useful tips and insights about Coffee Script. Unfortunately the ideas are often not expanded beyond a very short example of their use. As a newcomer to the language I would have appreciated more complete examples. For instance, towards the end of the book the author shows with one complex example how to use 'do->' to create private properties in a class, and then quickly moves onto another topic. The whole topic of classes is in another chapter of the book.

This book should be better organised, into short, complete subject-based chapters. Trying to find information is difficult because the information isn't structured very well and there's no index at the back.

On the whole I didn't find the book offered as good an introduction to the language as what is on the CoffeeScript.org website.

This book is officially the smallest tech book I own! That isn't a bad thing, the book gets the point and covers all the key parts of CoffeeScript. If you are looking to learn CoffeeScript then definitely purchase this book.

Started to learn CoffeeScript while making my Ruby on Rails website [...]. This little book is a great resource. I recommend this book for anyone starting out with CoffeeScript.
