In reviewing this book, Ian Elliot observed that "Generally cookbooks aim low and are largely of use to beginners needing to put boilerplate code together to get something that works. In this case however the cookbook seems to be aimed higher. It covers a very wide range of topics but they all seem to be challenging rather than introductory"
The recipes tend to try to do things that the beginner just wouldn't consider, such as using IndexDB to persist data.
Awarding it 4.5 stars, Ian concluded: "This book isn't perfect but it is very useful - recommended"
