    "As with most O'Reilly publications, Introducing Go does a good job of being both accessible and thorough. While not as user friendly as the Dummy series, O'Reilly provides more well rounded learning with their books, and this one is no exception. From the basic to advanced lessons, this book is a great choice for learning Go."

    "A nifty little program that I have tinkered around with from time to time. It is immersive, but not so much that it's easy to get lost or completely lose your way with it. Plenty of assistance in this program."

    "Derek Bananas provides an in depth learning video providing the basics of installing the Go program, which is nice when you're new to the particular program, as well as learning the language. He then breaks it down with each step you need to be able to achieve programming in Go. I really like the in depth tutorial, as he does go at my learning pace."

    "Go is supposedly a relatively user-friendly and no-nonsense programming language, so my expectation when I bought the book was that the learning curve would be manageable and that the book would strike a balance between technical jargon and smooth instructions. I must say I was a bit underwhelmed, since the book was a bit steep for me. I was honestly expecting something that would help me learn Go in a relatively painless way, which was not really the case. It might be me though, because the book has some great reviews. I should go back to it with more reasonable expectations and more time to tackle the project."

    "I think that buying The Go Programming Language would be a good way to learn Go. The drawback to this site is that it for a book and not a direct website. I would maybe buy a Kindle copy so I would be able to faster access to it but I feel that there are better ways to go about learning Go."
