Very nice explanation of the motivation for why to use them. They are definitely more than just a shiny new addition to the library.

Definitely. I think the closing paragraph sums it up nicely - "The marketing pitch for Hooks is that you’re able to use state inside function components. In reality, Hooks are much more than that. They’re about improved code reuse, composition, and better defaults."
