About the Book

Redux might be one of the smallest libraries in the JS world, but it is having a huge impact on modern web development.  An array of new concepts and ideas make Redux both challenging to understand and extremely powerful to use.

In this book you will learn about the inner workings of Redux, and how to use it to solve real-world challenges. We’ll teach you about everything you need to know to use this valuable tool effectively, including store enhancers, normalized state, unit testing, using third-party libraries, and much, much more.
