Great reference book for beginners
I am a long-term Intellij Idea user and since I first heard about the relatively new MPS Language Workbench, I wanted to explore it and see its use cases. JetBrains provides some basic documentation about the tool, but it is far from being complete especially if you seriously consider adopting this framework in your workflow/pipeline. To this end, this book addresses a huge documentation gap and provides information about MPS basics with tutorial-like examples. Often times, the text is accompanied with screenshots that have step-by-step annotation on them, which is really helpful for reproducing the steps mentioned in the book. If you have really little or no experience with the JetBrains development environment, this book will definitely serve you well. For those of you who have been developing softwares with JetBrains tools, it is still a good book to get to know the new MPS framework and you will find it easier to digest the book.
