"Backbone.js Applications" - by HigherLearning on 08-JUN-2013

I am giving this book two stars because the examples were not thoroughly documented and did not run from the Excerises chapter. The writing style is not educational, more like a users manual.
I continuously had to use the web to find answers for things the book should have contained. Hence wasted lot of time.

A decent supplement to Backbone's online documentation. Contains useful introductions to MVC and OOP principles. Good to use as a reference when first jumping into Backbone.
