[PD] [OT] cool book (maybe relevant to list discussion)

I have read the book myself, and it is not a book that claims "I will
teach you seven languages in seven weeks", but the author introduces the
reader to basic concepts in each language (prototypal inheritance,
functional programming) and shows some aspects where each language has
its advantages, e.g. concurrency, logical rules.

That said, the title may be misleading.

Best regards,
