Here's what readers are saying about the book:

"Your First Meteor Application" is an insanely well written beginners book on Meteor.js. As someone who's still learning the ropes of SPAs, I can appreciate the level of care the writer took to explain then re-explain each step taken to ensure I'm not only learning but not falling behind either. That's a rarity for a coding book. Cherish it. Josh Davis
Whether you are a beginner or an experienced programmer, this is hands down the BEST book to start getting up to speed on Meteor. This book won't teach you everything (it just scratched the surface), but the author does a fantastic job of walking you through how a Meteor application works, where everything goes and what all the code means. Ben Wong
Being an intermediate web developer my pride usually forbids me to look at beginner literature such as this. But, boy, am I glad I did not pass on that book! David has a great writing style and walks you through building a full application with Meteor from start to finish. It is all you need to get not only a good understanding of Meteor, but also of programming for the web in general. Stephan Hochhaus
I've gone through two Meteor books and many more tutorials and this was by far the most simple yet thorough introduction to Meteor. It was the first time I fully grasped Meteror and left feeling excited to go through it again to nail those concepts. I hope there's a sequel!Jordan L.
