An excellent book for anyone interested in Groovy,
This review is from: Programming Groovy: Dynamic Productivity for the Java Developer (Pragmatic Programmers) (Paperback)
Even though I had been coding Grails sites for the past seven months I never really felt like was taking full advantage of Groovy's capabilities. This book was a real eye opener! Closures, MetaProgramming and Builders had all been a bit of a vague subject but the examples are extremely easy to understand and make the process of learning quick and interesting.
This is one of the few books that cuts straight to the chase and tells you what you need. This is a problem, this is how you might do it in Java, this is how you can do it in Groovy and this is how you can make it even Groovier. This book was A-ha after A-ha after A-ha! It's always a pleasure to read books that start your mind racing as to how you implement that code snippet you just learnt into your current projects or how things that had stumped you in the past turn out to have elegant and simple solutions.
