I was seeing the following error when I ran the browserify command.

[~/babelify_example]$ browserify src/index.js --transform babelify --outfile dist/bundle.js --debug
module.js:557
    throw err;
    ^

Error: Cannot find module 'babel-core'

Apparently, you need to add babel-core like so:
npm install --save-dev babel-core

I would like to say ... after this not working in chapter 2:

$ babel src -d dist

And then this not working in chapter 3:

$ browserify src/index.js --transform babelify --outfile dist/bundle.js --debug

and searching stack overflow then finally the forums for this book I am VERY disappointed.

It will be difficult to learn anything when the examples in the book do NOT work and I have to continually lose my stride second guessing everything and not knowing if the errors are real or not.

Did ANYONE try to go through the book with a clean computer to make sure things actually worked before printing it???

jeeze!
