2013 July Update - SICP, The Modern Web, Functional JavaScript

This will be short update!

Books that I will talk about on today's ReadingClub:


Really good and hard book. Right now I stumble upon many ideas that I read in SICP in very different places :)  Most of it is around Functional Programming and Clojure but still.

The Modern Web by Peter Gasston

Really good book about newest API's. It's still fresh so it's worth to read it!

[Paranormality: Why we believe the impossible](paranormality: Why we believe the impossible) by Prof. Richard Wiseman

Awesome book! It's great to see how I've been fooled :)

Being Geek by Michel Loop

I was disappointed by this one. It's mostly about geek being team leader or manager. I'm not so much interested in it.

Functional JavaScript by Michael Fogus

I have really high expectations about this book but unfortunately I feel that I miss something in it. Probably context of me and author are too different. One of the ideas in book started to make sense to me while learning more about Clojure. I think that I will spent some time with Clojure to know more about Functional Programming in general.
