Best books for learning Node.js?

What books did you use when learning Node.js? Here are some of the books I read (that I can remember)

Beginning Node.js
One of the better books for starting out with Node, but you definitely need some JavaScript experience before reading. Lots of good examples, but the way the author explains some things is kind of difficult to follow.

Practical Node.js
Good for learning how you would use Node in actual projects and also with some of the most popular libraries.

Node.js the Right Way
Would not recommend. Rather brief and most concepts were not very well explained.

The Node Beginner Book
Very short (only 66 pages) but it teaches you how to create a very simple server.

Node.js in Practice
Good book, but definitely not for the beginner. Author seems to kind of cram everything together but lots of good examples.

Node.js is a platform built on Chrome’s JavaScript runtime for easily building fast, scalable network applications. Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient, perfect for data-intensive real-time applications that run across distributed devices.
