Hey, I'm Jorge, the author (it felt so weird to say that), my goal with this book is help Ionic 2 developers start building MVPs or Prototypes faster using one of the best technologies out there, Firebase. Firebase is one of the best MBaaS out there, I went from building MPVs or Prototypes in ~10 weeks to building them in less than half that time. My goal is to get you started in no time, so that you can understand Firebase & AngularFire2 fast, where to use them together and when to default to the JS SDK. So, join me now, it’s time to take your Ionic 2 knowledge to build a Firebase powered app

Some feedback on what's holding me back from purchasing this: 1. Please add a syllabus/chapter list. Is this ebook three pages long or 300 pages long? I have no idea. 2. Provide a sample chapter. Again, I'm in the dark on the quality of the ebook. 3. Include a 30-day money back guarantee. I'm nervous that if this book is poorly made, I'm stuck with it. 4. Proof-read and ask a peer to review: I see some simple spelling errors on your Gumroad page. Makes me think that the ebook will reflect that. Altogether, the idea is great. I've created several Ionic 1 apps, and I'm getting ready to dive into Ionic 2. I've also wanted to play around with Firebase for some time, so it sounds like this ebook would tackle both topics at once :)

@chadwhitaker hey Chad, Yeah it's a "work in progress" as in I've been focusing on the content and haven't really gotten to the marketing or sales page part trying to keep the book updated to the latest release of Ionic 2 RC0. I will take everything into consideration and implement where I see fit, but I'm also responding here: 1. Will post it soon, but it's a 62 page book, it doesn't explain Ionic 2, it assumes Ionic 2 knowledge and uses it to build firebase powered mobile apps (if you need to get started with Ionic 2 this isn't the book for you), it covers: * User Authentication. * CRUD * Firebase Storage * Simple Security Rules module. 2. I don't have a sample chapter, but I do have a free email course that's very similar to the book, but using Firebase's JS SDK instead of AngularFire2, you can check it out here: https://javebratt.com 3. I haven't thought about a money back guarantee (first product :P ) but in the end if someone bought it and it was a complete waste of time for them I don't see why I should keep their money. 4. My beta buyers are the ones doing it and they have done a good job so far reporting typos and bugs, I update the book regularly since it's a beta and sometimes Ionic or Firebase push updates that break everything :-) If you need to get started with Ionic 2, I do recommend Joshua's book instead: https://www.joshmorony.com/build...
