Pragmatic Programmer is on my list to get to somewhere.

How is “The Go Programming Language”? I haven’t written any Go in over a year but I keep re-reconsidering trying it.

At this moment, I'm really enjoying The Pragmatic Programmer, probably one of the best tech books I've ever read.

Now The Go Programming Language is a really good book. You don't need to read it from start to end (In fact, Authors recommend the opposite in the book and invite you to jump around the chapters).

The thing I like the most about Go is their documentation, but I started to read this book because of his authors (I did read loooong time ago The C programming Language) and I'm glad I bought it, but if you only are in that phase of wanting to try again, maybe is not necessary spend money in a book, just the official docs can do the trick.
