"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."
"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.

Allows me to switch from Lisp to Clojure in about an hour.
I think it's most appropriate for an experienced developer by hitting the sweet spot between getting to the point without dumping too much on you too fast. I'm reading it by jumping around and using it to guide my own experiments and its working great for that. The chapters are focused enough that I don't feel lost even though I've not digested everything before.
The writing style is clear and friendly and the examples are great.
