I am making an effort to learn Angular, and tried the tutorial on the Angular JS site. The Phone Cat tutorial was very good, but I couldn’t complete it, for reasons I don’t recall.
It is a fairly compact book, that gives you a basic idea and an overview of all the features and usage of Angular JS. The price of the book was great as well. However, I would have liked the book to feature XHR and $http in Angular JS. I feel that is something important that was missing in the book.
It was a quick read, and at the end I have to agree with Sebastian that it is fairly easy to get the basics, but once you encounter the advanced features, it is complex and peculiar.
