First and foremost, congratulations for the excellent book.

When I decided to learn Clojure, I checked out all the available resources, including reading the first chapters of books on the subject. This one stood out as the absolute best.

Now that I'm a quarter of the way in, I'd like to share my opinion on the writing style. It's generally flowing and easy, but at some points I found it a bit… not so flowing! I'm the first to recognize that a good learning book should intersperse serious and light passages. But some of the serious passages were a bit too pedantic, if you allow me the term, while some of the jokes and light passages were a bit too forced.

Don't get me wrong, I still think this is the best book on Clojure out there. I understand—and share—the author's enthusiasm for this technology, but I think this vibe won't do justice to the quality of the material.

In any case, keep up the good work!
I'll make sure to report any issues as I come across them.
