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.

Format: Paperback
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.

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.

Format: Paperback
As other reviewers has said before, this is a great introductory book on Clojure. It's slim profile definitely made Clojure a lot less intimidating. In fact, this is the book that introduced me to the wonderful world of Clojure. Stuart was extremely capable at packing a lot of information in the somewhat slim book by giving a lot of good examples to get you interested in the various part s of the language. I was able to write simple Clojure programs after going half-way through the book without any background in lisp. You'll want to read other books in Clojure such as Clojure Programming by Chas Emerick after reading this book but this is the best book to get you started on Clojure or make up your own mind on whether to pursue further in Clojure.
