React for Real

Ludovico Fischer

React helps you keep the data in sync with the UI in JavaScript web applications.

While other books attempt to teach you a lot of libraries that get out of date very fast, this book will focus on the core concepts: components and state updates.

This will keep the book short and to the point, so you can start coding fast. At the same time, you’ll be well equipped to decide which additional libraries to use.
