InfoQ Review: Groovy in Action

Published on Wednesday, June 13, 2007 in book, grails, groovy, and java

InfoQ has just published my review of the must-read book, Groovy in Action.  If you're doing anything with Groovy, or even considering it, you really owe it to yourself to pick up a copy of this book.  If you haven't had a chance yet to check out Groovy in Action, the review should give you a good idea of what to expect from the book, and Manning has also thrown in two chapter excerpts from the book (including one on the incredibly handy Groovy JDK) to give you a feel for it first-hand.

If you notice that the review reads a bit differently than what you might typically expect, that's due to InfoQ's unique requirements for its reviews.  InfoQ reviews aim to "contain less metadata and more data, or said differently, less talk about the book and more talk of the content in the book."  The hope is that the reader learns something even while reading the review.  It seems like a cool idea to me.  So, what do you think?  Let us know in the comments over on InfoQ or below.
