I have just finished reading this book and I could not be less satisfied. I picked up this book because I am getting into Nginx module development and I expected this book to offer some guidance in this. What I found was that the first 4 chapters of this book were just covering the basic compiling and configuring of core and basic 3rd-party modules. The last chapter finally gets into actually writing an nginx handler module and is where you'll find the real atrocities. The last chapter very loosely combines the work of Joshua Zhu as found at and Evan Miller's work as found at The author does give credit to the the author of the hello world module but doesn't give a single mention about Evan Miller's guide that is obviously the basis/foundation of the chapter, in which he plagiarizes Emiller's guide to explain Joshua's hello world module. If you want to compare yourself find chapter 5 on and section 2 in Evan's guide. This book does not dabble at all in the other major types of nginx modules such as load balancing or filtering. Considering this book offers only a subset of information from the works the author plagiarizes, I highly recommend you save your money and visit the links above that are much more helpful and available free of charge
