As a F# programmer, already familiar with functional programming, I was a bit bored and unimpressed at times, but I still enjoyed most of the book and will definitely play around some more with this new language in the near future.
I guess the book will be very revolutionary and impressive for somebody coming from the OO world with no functional experience.
The writer is not afraid to express his own opinion about programming and software development, and I like that :).
I was struggling to choose between 3 or 4 stars, because I felt the book lacked depth at some points. However, I concluded that the goal for the book is to serve as a quick introduction so I ended on 4 stars.
Aside of the subject (Elixir in itself, which is another topic!), this book is really well written, 5 stars!
