On p. 9 of React_in_Action_v11_MEAP.pdf, you indicate the following:

This usually hurts rather than helps you as a developer, so last warning: get comfortable with the basics of JavaScript before learning React.

Is there a particular book you would recommend? JavaScript Application Design (Manning Publications 2015) is mentioned on p. 119 but Manning also offers other JavaScript books that could get promoted in your book.

(On a separate note, I'm glad you recommend React Native in Action is mentioned on pp. 8 and 333-334.)

I've read Get Programming with JavaScript by John Larsen and thus far I haven't had any major issues following this book.
