Editorial Reviews

Review

"Clojure is one of the most interesting languages out there right now, and the best way of learning Clojure just got better. The second edition of “Programming Clojure” adds up-to-date information, plenty of practical examples, and a ton of useful tips on how to learn, work with, and succeed with Clojure."

—Ola Bini, Creator of Ioke language, developer, ThoughtWorks

"The authors have charted the smoothest path yet to Clojure fluency with this well-organized and easy-to-read book. They have a knack for creating simple and effective examples that demonstrate how the language’s unique features fit together."
—Chris Houser Primary Clojure contributor and library author

"Clojure is a beautiful, elegant, and very powerful language on the JVM. It’s like a cathedral: you could wander into it, but you’d prefer the company of a knowledgeable guide who can give you their perspective, to help you grasp and appreciate the architecture and the art. In this book you can enjoy and benefit from the company of not one, but two seasoned developers who have the depth of knowledge and the perspective you need."
—Dr. Venkat Subramaniam, Award-winning author and founder of Agile Developer, Inc.

This is very well-written, easy to read. Examples are simple and explain the concepts clearly.
Allows me to switch from Lisp to Clojure in about an hour.

Freshly updated to cover Clojure 1.3, this book does an excellent job of introducing you to Clojure. While a knowledge of Java, Lisp, and functional programming will expedite your learning of Clojure and more-quickly have you using it productively, I wouldn't say it's a pre-requisite to reading and understanding this book.

I suspect that a number of the 5 star reviews are posers. It is not that well written. The first chapter is a pure preachy sermon. All thee bow to the most worthy and excellent god Clojure. After that the author does speak about how to program in Clojure, but as soon as he gets to any depth he defers until later. In fact, I counted and chapter refers the reader ahead 23 times. I was usually able to at least understand what he is saying But I must say that I was not happy with the lack of focus or depth of explanation.

For an experienced programmer looking into starting clojure this book was amazing. It may be a little too dense for people new to programming though. A number of the chapters focus on concepts that wouldn't appear particularly useful to inexperienced coders and there is a definite emphasis on the usage of code for practical applications.
