Clojure is a language that makes many unique language design decisions.
I've read all of the Clojure books to date (some more thoroughly than others) and I whole-heartedly recommend the Joy of Clojure as the best of the bunch.
Excellent book for people with already some basic knowledge of Clojure (or at least some good Lisp or Functional Programming background).
