I just began reading the book and tbh, I was excited to read it. I bought the book to read during my travel, but then I found out that EVERY PAGE on the right side of the book has a "white line" or the missing ink on it. It "covered" some of the texts and I can't read them. This appeared on every right page of the book. Since they offered free ebook along with it, that's my workaround if I really want to know what the texts are on the missing line (This is very frustrating).

It is very focused on walking through bits of code step by step. That's not the ideal approach for me, but I can see it has some virtues. However, many times a block of code was printed more than once. It felt a bit like it was being done to stretch the page count.
Once you have the basics of Go via the Go "Tour" or Caleb Doxsey's "Introducing Go", this is a great book to help you get settled into the ecosphere of Go. The authors provide interesting internals in an understandable and useful way.
Excellent introduction to Go that took a village to write and it shows. The book definitely benefited from the early reviews and Go community involvement in the editing process. Wished all Mannings offerings were this exceptional.
