    1. This was a great book, I really enjoyed it. I have been interested in security for a while and this was a great introduction on how to make secure web sites in Node. Lots of great explanations, but, toward the end, not so many explanations. Lots of code and "As you can see the vulnerability" I wish he'd explained more as there were some things I simply didn't have the background to grasp.

    2. This was a great book. It teach best practices and how to do it the right way. Really easy to understand with examples and explanations. Every Node.JS developer should read this book.
