Some thoughts

To be honest, I only discovered Crystal recently. On the detour via Ruby, which I came to via Erlang/Elixir. The ways of the Lord are sometimes strange. I didn’t understand why this great language is so unknown. And it would be terrible if it simply disappeared into oblivion again. Perhaps the situation would be a little better if there was a new, more comprehensive and challenging book? For now, sponsoring is certainly the best way to keep the crew going.

If you come from Ruby, the official crystal book is really a good start.

AFAIK, there are only two books available for now.

programming crystal create high performance safe concurrent apps (older)

crystal programming (A project-based introduction to building efficient, safe, and readable web and CLI applications)
