1. You already know Ruby or Python
2. Are an idiot who can only understand other languages by prolonged comparisons with those two languages
..then you will find yourself doing a fair amount of skimming. When the authors stop wasting time this way and trust to the intelligence of the reader, the book improves considerably. (And really, how did the idiots they imagine they are writing for learn Ruby or whatever in the first place?) Unfortunately, the unnecessary cruft gets in the way of reading. 4 stars is slightly too kind for the book, but 3 would have been much too mean.
However, Clojure is very much still leading edge and so you should expect to have to engage with the community in order to learn- you won't get enough out of any of the current crop of Clojure books but I think it is well worth the effort.
