Would a guide to help navigate the React Ecosystem be useful?

Would a guide to help navigate the React Ecosystem be useful?

So for a few days now I've been writing a draft for an eBook idea I had recently, and I wanted to gauge interest before I progress (I'm two chapters in out of about eight or nine).
The book would be a guide for people who've maybe learned the basics of React, but are daunted by the sheer scope of the ecosystem and the amount of things that they need to learn in order to create a complete application.
Ideally I'd like to cover project setup, routing, data management, styling, animation, auth, accessibility, forms and deployment. This is subject to change of course and may shrink/grow. Throughout the book I'd also be walking through the creation of an actual application.
I'm not trying to go into crazy detail about every topic, or go deep into the APIs of each package I'm covering. I just want to make the reader aware of what each topic is, how it will be useful to them and how they can effectively utilize the technologies associated with these topics.
I felt very overwhelmed by the sheer amount of things that I felt like I had to learn when I first learned React so I'm hoping a guide like this would help give direction to newer developers.
So what do you guys think? Would you be interested in such a book? Even if you know everything that I've mentioned, do you think this would be useful for people? Any feedback would be much appreciated.

I would benefit from this! I'm coming from a design / marketers background newly venturing into development. Just getting off the ground with JS and this would be illuminating for me โ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿ“š

This is definitely a great idea. I'm constantly googling different things in the react ecosystem that maybe didn't stick the first time around. It would be nice to have an effective resource to go to about the different topics
