I appreciate the effort but found the discussion even more confusing than my already confused understanding. Some simple examples would help.

If author is here, I just read the first chapter and it seems well written. Thank you, I will definitely read through the rest.

Thanks for the feedback. I hope you enjoy the rest of it as well.

cannot add tags to pocket entry on chrome for the site, search takes over after the first letter is typed in to pocket chrome extension.

I would appreciate if the title said it's for js (and not rust)

Why? Would you not prefer an accurate title over a misconception?

The book’s title is “The Node Experiment - Exploring Async Basics with Rust”.

The reference to Node is that the book reimplements a similar system to Node’s event loop, but using Rust, to learn more about Rust’s async support.

Node is chosen as a well known async model for this generation’s developers.

What do you mean? It's about writing a node-js like event loop in rust. Calling it "for js" seems highly misleading.
