If I had to summarize Get Programming with Go, I would do so by saying that it accomplishes the incredibly challenging task of providing enough detail and background to be beginner friendly, while also avoiding so much detail and monotony that it is tedious and boring for an expert. Regardless of your background, this book is a great resource for learning Go.

In addition to being approachable and well paced, the book is designed to be very hands-on. Not only are there tons of examples to read, co

I just finished reading this last night. It was a very good introduction to golang that was easy to follow and comprehend. The author was very good at relaying the information in a way that allowed a wannabe gopher to get the confidence to start programming with the language. I hope that the author will someday make a sequel to this book to cover more advanced techniques.

A really good book on getting started with Go programming. Most, still not all, of the language features are covered. The author uses a lot of fun narrative to explain and demonstrate. I think even people who are new to programming or computer science will understand.

I wish the book would cover more advanced topics like how a module is organized or how non-standard packages are imported.

Very good introduction to Go. This book is not going deep in all area of Go, but gives just enough to start coding in code.
This book does not cover how to structure your code, but that is beyond the scope of this book. The book ends with teaching channels, goroutines, and mutexes.
