5.0 out of 5 stars Top Notch!, 7 Feb 2013
Almost read the whole thing, and all I have to say is, look no longer, if you've been on the lookout for a decent book on JavaScript, this is certainly it. I'd even go as far and say I'll probably re-read it all over again just for the sake of it. I wouldn't particularly consider it a reference, I'd say David Flanagan's definitive guide might suit the description better. It shows, the author clearly grasps the subject and knows how to deliver it in a comprehensible and pleasant way. You'll read this book on the commute and back and surely won't be caught dozing off as Nicholas' writing-style is no short of captivating. Clear and concise explanations, meaty content, all you've been waiting… Read more
The Joy of Clojure: Thinking the Clojure Way by Michael Fogus

This is by far the most interesting book on the subject of clojure I've had the honor of reading to this date. Not a beginner's book, but a definite must. I own the hard-copy and carry around the PDF with me at all times. Think "The Well-Grounded Java developer" and "C# in depth" with a clojure flavour. The writing style is excellent and will keep you reading for more.

If you've only been introduced to the language, get "Clojure Programming" from O'Reilly and then make sure to come back and pick up this gem at a later date. This is a classic and will last through the years to come as one.

I'm only 50% through this book so far, and I have to say this is the most comprehensive book on clojure I've found to date. The authors clearly grok the subject. If you're intentions are to dabble with the language for a week and never touch it again (very unlikely - you'll be hooked if you're not already) then this may not be the right book for you. On the other hand, if becoming a clojure ninja is the aim, I wouldn't pick any other volumes than this very one. This book will suit both beginners and already versed clojure developers.
