Vue.js Books You Have to Read

You can't master programming just by reading books, but it will surely help you get started. Vue offers an excellent documentation, but books can guide you through developing your first SPAs, setting up testing or other topics more deeply when you need it. 

So have a look at some high-quality Vue.js Books to dive 🏊 into your new favourite framework!

The entries are sorted by new, not by preference as every one of you will need a different focus when learning Vue.js.
