thanks. which of those books goes furthest? (i imagine i can work out the basic stuff, so it seems best to choose whichever includes the most obscure/advanced features - and i'd like to save time by reading just one...).

i do use emacs for text editing, so i'll try it for clojure (i should say that there was only one wrinkle in getting the environment working in intellij - that was adding clojure.jar to the classpath, which it told me to do in an error popup, so it wasn't hard at all).

ps to save others googling: http://joyofclojure.com/ ; http://www.apress.com/9781430272311

Joy is really going deep into the language concepts and is very well written.

Yes Joy of Clojure does go deeper, but in my opinion Practical Clojure has, well, more practical examples. Both are great, and overlap in many areas. But for code examples, Practical Clojure over Joy.
