Does it cover any MVC? I got one book from packet discussing MVC, but it's fairly simple and is only about 125 pages.

The only MVC I could find in the touch->action book was used in the later part where they build an app. I though it odd... almost an afterthought.

Wasn't an afterthought. We try to teach different parts of the framework with each chapter and then lead up to an application.

Perhaps I missed it, was looking just the other day for a chapter or even a paragraph with MVC advice. Did not see any 'this is what a controller is, why you use a controller and how Sencha advises you use this within your application'. Again, I saw mentions of MVC but only within the context of building an app at the end of the book and felt it was a passing thought by the authors.

Theres very good stuff in that book you'll not easily find on the web but I feel MVC should be a bit more prominent as it's not an easy concept for some to pickup on... especially considering how integral that concept is to building ST apps.

Just noticed 4th dec MEAP does not include anything about Native API (Ext.device).
is this on purpose due to its self explanatory nature?
thanks

Overall, do you recommend it?

EDIT:
I have experience in ExtJS but very few in ST, also I use Architect.

I do. They demonstrate techniques I've not seen or found in any examples by Sencha.
