    Hi, thanks for being reader of my Practical AngularJS book. I just released a new version which contains a large number of fixes and significant content refactoring.

    The content of this version is very similar to the previous release, but I'm planning to make big changes in the next months.

    I'm going to add a number of new chapters, remove content that might be better in a different book, and more importantly, cover Angular 2 Beta (which looks really good and interesting)

    I really need your feedback on this book, so please don't hesitate to contact me at or directly at the GitHub repo that contains all content and Issue tracking:
