This Is The Best Advanced React Book I’ve Ever Read

There are a lot of books/courses about React.

And I've read/purchased a lot of them over the past +5 years.

Unfortunately, I find many of them to be either bloated or too superficial - while still being expensive.

But recently, I have read a book called Advanced React by Nadia Makarevich that I believe is the best investment to make if you want to master React.

For a few reasons:

Reason #1: It covers everything you might find tricky as a junior dev and need to know to be a React expert. The book discusses everything you need to learn to be really good at React, like how renders work, refs, context, and more. Back when I started over 5 years ago, I wish I had this book – it could've saved me from some confusing state issues.

Reason #2: It is well-written with a lot of illustrations. I love books that make hard stuff easy to understand, and this one does it really well. All the concepts are explained with nice and simple pictures.

Reason #3: It stays practical. If you are looking for a book that gets straight to the point without going off track, choose this one. You can use what you learn right away at work.

Reason #4: It's concise. With only 314 pages, it's a quick read. You get the essential information without unnecessary fluff.

Reason #5: It's affordable. At just $32, it's a bargain compared to other React resources.

If you want to master React, I can't recommend this book enough.

If you've read it, do you agree? What other book would you recommend for intermediate/advanced React developers?
