5.0 out of 5 stars Best introduction so far (Aug. 2010), August 20, 2010
This review is from: Practical Clojure (Expert's Voice in Open Source) (Paperback)
Clojure was first announced in 2007. So far (Aug. 2010) there are two books on the market. The first book, Programming Clojure, was written in a chatty prose, so it is less usable as a language reference book. The current book under review is organized more like a traditional language reference book, so it is easier to look up things. This suits a programmer like me better, who are more used to learn by doing: building small applications and looking up needed pieces when problems are encountered. In addition, this book covers features of Clojure 1.2, which is just out.

There are also two other books that are not finalized yet, but available as electronic early access versions from the publisher (Manning). I am reading one of them, Joy of Clojure, which is a more in-depth book than the two on the market, but also written in chatty format. For my current level of experience (a few months of playing with small code, no previous Lisp experience), I feel the current book under review is the best choice.
