I purchased the Kindle edition of this book on July 9, 2016 and the code formatting is still inexcusable for a $30 digital book. The description of the book was updated in April of this year to say that the code formatting had been updated, but there is no way that the content in this book could possibly count as an improvement. It either wasn't actually done, or something went terribly wrong.Here are some of the things that you will be looking forward to with the purchase of this book:Bold words will be butted up directly against non-bold words sostufflookslikethis and then it goes back to normalAll keywords and identifiersshallexistontheirownlinesBraces shall not line { up}The first couple of symbols in one line shall begin at the very end of the previous line; thencontinue on the next line; likethisCode shall be presented in a serif fontThe angle brackets surrounding HTML element names shall be presented on their own linesI thought I could take it, but it beat me pretty fast. The formatting is just too awful to keep looking at sample after sample. The editors at Apress ought to be ashamed of themselves for letting this thing out the door while looking like this.exportdefaultclassSkipThisBookextendsUntilTheyActuallyFixIt

Pro React is the book I wish I had when I first started learning React/JS. I came from a background in Rails and entering the JS Community was super overwhelming. This book would have definitely put my mind at ease. Cassio does a fantastic job at introducing and explaining some of the key React concepts that took me digging through tons of blog posts to learn. Yes, it uses Flux, which is a little outdated since everyone uses Redux now but all the core concepts remain the same. In fact, learning about Flux has made me appreciate and understand Redux even more. The author also mentioned he will be writing a port of the Flux chapter into Redux. Whether you've been using React for a few days or a few weeks I highly recommend picking this book up.

Very well written and even more, it's organized and explained in a way that makes perfect sense. This made it easy for me to understand seemingly complex concepts very quickly. I constantly reference this book when working on my React projects.

This is an outstanding dive into React, along with decent coverage of many supporting areas, like CSS animations, drag and drop, React Router, flux, performance tuning, and server-side rendering.The coverage of each is very well designed. He initially makes a simple example, just to show the underlying concept bereft of any un-needed complexity, and then follows it up with a much more complex and realistic scenario; this shines especially well in the flux chapter.The only downside was the editing. I'm surprised a big publisher Apress didn't do a better job of squashing typos and grammatical errors, but they didn't detract from the content of the book; they were easily passed over.

This book is definitely for professionals who are looking to learn React the enterprise-level way. The author builds the React case very well, by taking the reader through a simple and scalable application.

I work using React.js and this is without a doubt the best thing I've read about the framework. Ideal for an intermediate JS dev, maybe with a basic understanding of React who wants to dive deeper into the framework.

This book has been phenomenal for me. It's been a joy to go through. It takes you through creating a Kanban App. I've been following along and typing the code in as I go, creating the app. That's my typical approach with any programming book. I'll usually find some errors, typos, etc, but I've only come across one minor thing with a webpack file, that was easily found out by checking the super organized github repo. The quality of this book has let me focus on learning React and not focusing on fixing typos or getting projects setup. I would recommend this book to anyone looking to get up to speed quickly with React. Kudos to the author, looking forward to future books of his!

A good book completely ruined by formatting in the Kindle version.Not only are the code samples unreadable, sometimes it can even be hard to scan for the next section as headings even blend into the rest of the text.Fix the formatting and I'll change this to 5 stars. Many people have complained about this; what's taking so long?
