The beginning of the book explains the purpose of React Native and how it is different from React for the web. One of the main distinctions is that you can develop for iOS and Android simultaneously, and the author does a nice job of pointing out where you may need a specific component for one framework.
Towards the middle of the book there is information about how to style your app, how to handle touch screen events, and reading from different APIs. There was a lot of screen shots to help guide the reader and the examples were relevant. Deployment of the application is discussed in the later chapters.
I found many places where the author said that some technique is likely to be outdated soon as the React project changes really quickly. The author gives link suggestions where to find updates and I found this to be helpful.
For some reason the book is listed as 272 pages on Amazon although my print copy has the index starting at page 245. There are tons of screen shots in the book, while helpful, make the book much shorter than I was expecting. I felt some sections were skimmed over a bit too quick like Reflux/Flux which had only 4 pages for them. Overall though, the author had clear explanations and provides a nice introduction to React Native.
