Learning strategies depend on what kind of a person you are.
I for one can be a bit impatient when trying to learn something new unless I get to do something with it. This is a reason a lot of my learning projects never finish.
OTOH, the things I learn while doing hands-on, tend to stay with me for a while. Can't say the same with reading books and then diving in.
However, I'd pick books over video tutorials any day of the week.

Let's put React.js for example. I can simply learn react by looking at the "Getting Started" and some basic concepts, and then start coding immediately. But then I will miss concepts like redux and other patterns if I don't read an entire book.

React.js is easy enough to start like that and I do not think there is any harm in it. I'd go for the more advanced concepts only when required.
