Chapter 1 does not enough have material to decide if the text is worth buying this early.
Suggest you make several other chapters available.

After reading the first chapter, I have the same concerns and didn't yet buy the book.

Thanks for the feedback. Once the book is fully released, just a few weeks now, we'll make another chapter available, likely chapter 9.

Thanks. I guess also the GitHub repository would help or details of what JavaScript code (mentioned early on) is developed in the book. Presumably it's only for the enterprise-priced Keylines, and not D3, which is introduced in an appendix. For those developing with Neo4j, it seems that they still interact well with each other. And Keylines has a 21-day trial, which presumably is mentioned in the book.

I do not mean to take anything away from the author, 3 chapters in and the text appears to be potentially useful. However, while the text provides plenty of information on the theory and practice of the subject matter, KeyLines appears to be unwilling to provide trial licenses to individuals ( "Unfortunately, we can currently only offer online trials to registered companies." ). This unfortunately limits the utility of the book for anyone working through the material for personal or academic use, and is something anyone considering buying the book should be aware of before committing their money.
