A couple of random thoughts about this bookFirst off you have the idea that for each language the author would spend one week I'll not get into the fact that each week has 3 days only This is a great idea How much of the concepts of a programming language can you capture in just one week Are the interfaces good Are they simple and easy to understand The fact is the author did not spend one week on each language In the Clojure chapter he mentions that he got the idea after a month So instead of trying to capture the good and bad points in one week which again it's a good thing so one can understand how ergonomic a language is the author decided the reader should only take one week per languageSecond there is a huge about of obvious obviously and simple Sure it may seem obvious for the author but most of the time things are not obvious for people who never saw anything relatedNot only there is an abuse of obvious things sometimes the author seems to either not understand some concepts of the language or tries to simplify an explanation to the point it sounds wrong and I just realized that 'cause I've read books about some of the languagesAnd there are times when the author shows a piece of code with something completely new and forgets to explain what that new thing means I'm glad I've read books about Clojure and Haskell before otherwise I'd never understand what the thing really wasOn the general it's a book about seven languages Instead of reading this book I'd suggest getting the list of languages and going after them in other ways instead of reading this

Best PDF Seven Languages in Seven Weeks By Bruce A Tate This is very go. I did not like this book one bit There are a number of reasons for this so let me take them in turnFirst the tone is resolutely jokey with an overall conceit that each of the seven languages is a character from a movie Now this may help some people but to my mind words spent discussing Ferris Bueller are words that could have been devoted to discussing the language in uestion As far as I'm concerned the shorter a technical book is the better and I'd prefer it if it didn't try to tell me what I ought to find amusing Your milage may varySecond the author is ever so ever so full of himself and is a very strong believer in the curious philosophy that if something was invented five years ago then it must be better than something that's been in serious use for decades It's rather like the way that each generation of teenagers appear to believe that they are the first people in the world ever to have had sex and about as instructive The reality is that say Clojure may be really big with the people who prefer hype to substance but basically all it is is a crippled version of LISP with an overly complex syntax Why waste your time learning the ins and outs of Clojure when you cal learn the syntax of LISP in ten minutes Especially as LISP has a rather large literature of extremely high uality I also find it instructive that nowhere does the author actually admit that Clojure is LISP with brackets; he makes it sound new Because new is goodThird and as a corollary he seems to think that if he doesn't understand something it's impossible to understand Thus he gives a horribly garbled description of Monads in Haskell and then on the grounds that his explanation is incomprehensible asserts that we can't possible hope to understand Monads and therefore Haskell is too hard for anyone to use As any number of authors including me have shown Monads are very simple and really rather elegant beasts and incredibly powerful they're just machines for making stateful widgetsSo is the book worth reading at all For six of the seven languages covered the answer is a definite 'no' Better books exist on Ruby Prolog Scala Erlang Clojure and Haskell most published by o'Reilly The one exception is IO a language that the author doesn't do full justice to but which with its paradigm that everything is a message passed from one object to another is uite fascinating As far as I am aware this is the only book that covers IO so it might almost be worth reading for the chapter on IO along But it's an expensive book to buy so borrow a copy if you decide you do want to know
