In other words, at the risk of getting a "damn, you're stupid" from a certain predatory mammal, what languages are the topic of your book?

Having taken a look at the description of all the info that is packed into your book, I'm pretty sure the reviewer at Amazon was having a difficult time trying to keep it inside the character limits of a Book Description. hehe
TIA. And, I look foward to reading the book thoroughly!

-- Have you used those frameworks to build applications or the book has detail explanation of each implementation, Even if its part of the framework?
-- Is this a book about putting everything at the right place? Like when to use which framework and how?
-- Everyday you wake up you get to know a new JS framework which has solved some existing problems. Is this book goes beyond these frameworks learning and focus on Concepts?
I wish you all the best for your book. I am sure this will add great value to Programming world. Thanks for your efforts.
Also, would you recommend the pre-release eBook is available now or wait for the final version in October?

At my day job I work primarily with Java, and I've been at that long enough that I'm strongly in "the grass is greener on the other side of the fence" mode. With that disclaimer out of the way, I think maybe the type system in Clojure or Perl6 might be good: you can specify the type parameters if you want, but the code usually runs fine without them (unless you've made a type-related error). It's an optional help.
My oldest kid is nine, and I'm trying to make writing software interesting for him but I can't get him much past "Hello World" before his mind wanders. It's a credit to you and probably to whoever raised you that were you playing with Basic by age 5.

2. Does the book walk through building one particular sample application as an example, or is it broken into a few sample applications? Or does it not work that way, and all of the sections have examples isolated from each other?
4. When I'm reading someone's work, it helps me to understand their approach if I know what other areas of study and programming languages they know and like to use. (e.g. Larry Wall, creator of Perl, is a linguist. Martin Odersky, who created Scala, worked on the Java compiler at Sun and helped design Java generics. etc...) So... if you like, please inform us of your background and other languages you like to use, if any.
