Did you have a chance to read Clojure In Action from the same publisher ? How different is it ? Do they complement each other ?

Not sure who you're aiming the question at but I'm reading both books and they have quite different approaches.

Clojure in Action follows a very practical path. The Joy of Clojure follows a more philosophical path.

Both books present the "what", CiA presents the "how", tJoC presents the "why".

I'm glad I have both books and would recommend both books to anyone wanting to learn Clojure. I don't think any single book is the only way to learn any language.

Interesting. So both books complement each other. Thank you for sharing this.
