Just pick up the video series from Rich Hickey himself http://blip.tv/clojure

And 'Programming Clojure' (among others). It's a nice concise read. (http://www.amazon.com/Programming-Clojure-Stuart-Halloway/dp...)

Edit: blip.tv is terrible for navigation. You have to click a few times to go to page 5 of the channel. Start there.

Andrew mentioned The Joy of Clojure (http://www.amazon.com/The-Joy-Clojure-Thinking-Way/dp/193518...) and Clojure Programming (http://www.amazon.com/Clojure-Programming-Chas-Emerick/dp/14...). Both books are good, and each has its strong points.

The Joy of Clojure goes into to Clojure philosophy and explains the "Why?" of Clojure. Clojure Programming is divided into five parts, and parts III and IV provide a good overview of how to set up your environment and structure projects.

But the best book for learning the language is Programming Clojure (http://www.amazon.com/Programming-Clojure-Stuart-Halloway/dp...) by Stu Halloway. Stu works alongside Rich and understands Clojure at a deep level, but he's still in tune to the beginner's mind and is able to clearly explain concepts and provide the context you need for the ideas to resonate.

Not yet -- I'll work on putting those up somewhere. Until then, I can tell you this: Stuart Halloway's "Programming Clojure" (http://www.amazon.com/Programming-Clojure-Stuart-Halloway/dp...) is the best book (I've read through them all).

Stu works alongside Rich so he understands Clojure at a deep level, but he's still in tune to the beginner's mind and is able to clearly explain concepts and provide the context you need for the ideas to resonate.
