So, I’m on the road towards learning Clojure, via Stuart Halloway’s Programming Clojure. It’s an OK book, hardly the gem (no pun intended) that the pickaxe was. However, it is thorough, and is less disjointed than simply googling around for Clojure info and docs.

With all that in mind, Casting SPELs in Clojure is a welcome companion to Halloway’s book (perhaps best as an introduction). While not nearly as comprehensive, it’s more readable, and has a more fluid style. After I get through the basics of Clojure, I’m looking forward to finally learning about Monads in Clojure.
