I got to review the O'Reilly book about AngularJS, which was nice since I was planning on using it for a recent project. I followed through most of the examples, which went OK-ish. Yes, I'm very impressed with how easy it seems to be to make very dynamic and interactive web apps. But as soon as I tried to apply it to my own project, I had quite some problems getting it working. Especially with concepts like directives or getting functions from multiple modules work together, I couldn't get the required knowledge from the book to get them working.

This book is probably more recommended for somebody who's already familiar with Javascript MVC frameworks, looking to brush up on AngularJS, rather than a Javascript rookie like myself.
