Book Review: Clojure Cookbook: Recipes for Functional Programming

Clojure Cookbook: Recipes for Functional Programming by Luke VanderHart

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

An excellent book, not only as a reference but as a learning resource. It is by no means written as a general entry point to Clojure, but provides terse, practical, fast-paced insight with just enough explanation to be as instructive as it is useful. The quality of the “discussion” portions means this is good for more than just copy-paste reading, while the emphasis on projects and practicality make it a pre-eminent go-to as you refine your Clojure skills. The subjects span from basic datatypes to web servers, databases interaction, and unit testing.
