Learning ReactJS from the official Facebook page cane be very confusing. React: Up & Running: Building Web Applications however makes this process much easier. It starts you off at the very basics of a React.js application and takes you all the way to more complex applications that make use of Reactjs Components, Jest for testing and much more. Although the book does not answer certain specific questions like what module bundler you should use, it is a very practical and hands on book that gets you started with the process of working with ReactJS building blocks and lets you figure out the rest. Which is great as it focuses on the basic and that is getting started with React.
React: Up & Running: Building Web Applications is a good starting book on ReactJS. Work through the entire book and your ReactJS skills will be upgraded. Put in the effort and work through it, and you will be rewarded. React: Up & Running: Building Web Applications will level you up and is high recommended just like the rest of Stoyan Stefanov‘s work.
