Recommended: “Leaflet.js Succinctly” E-Book

Syncfusion is a very interesting company. They’ve published over 90 technical e-books on a wide range of subjects. Each book has about 100 pages which means authors have to get to the point quickly. Each e-book has the word “Succinctly” in the title. See


The Syncfusion e-books are somewhat similar to the O’Reilly “in a nutshell” books but with one difference — the Syncfusion e-books are free with no strings attached. (Well, you do have to give an e-mail address for marketing purposes but Syncfusion is very restrained in their volume of messages).

I’ve written a couple of Syncfusion e-books myself and I’ve served as the technical reviewer for about a dozen of the books. One of the books I reviewed, “Leaflet.js Succinctly”, was released recently.


Leaflet.js is an open source library for placing maps on a Web page. I’ve worked with Google Maps and Bing Maps and they’re both very good, but the Leaflet.js library is especially nice. Leaflet.js is a JavaScript library and it’s lightweight and easy to use.

The author of “Leaflet.js Succinctly” is Mark Lewin. In addition to being technically accurate, Mark has a very nice writing style and, in my opinion, combines his code examples with his text explanations in just the right way.

Anyway, if you’re interested in maps on a Web page, I recommend you download (for free!) “Leaflet.js Succinctly” from the Syncfusion site.
