There is no code. It only provides basic setup information, which is already outdated.
Given the name of the book I expected at least one complete example project from setup to finished app. Just an implementation of the obligatory todo app using the Closure libraries would have made me much happier with this book.
I recommend the author to do a major update, and include some content.
I recommend anyone looking to get started with Clojurescript to go read some blog posts.
I would have liked the book to address that problem upfront or gone in to more detail about why a transaction is necessary to change a value when there cannot be any contention.
The argument for using persistent data structures at all was equally weak.
If there is a book out there that can justify those design choices in a way that you can sell to your coffeescripting co-workers, I'd buy that instead.
The reason I took out 1 star is due to the examples. The examples are extremely helpful but they are somewhat incomplete. I wish there is a github repo with up-to-date examples or a companion website with all the examples. There were a couple of issues I encountered while practicing the examples laid out in the book:
1. In the section regarding macros, make sure you put the macro in the src/clj/<namespace_directory>/<macro_filename>.clj and make sure you restart your repl for the file to be picked up
2. The section regarding bRepl is great but I haven't been able to make it work YET and I wasn't able to find help anywhere yet. For the sake of completeness it's really annoying since the examples are so simple and should work!
