It's called "Writing An Interpreter In Go" and contains what it says on the box.
In the book we will build a programming language from scratch. We'll start with 0 lines of code and end up with a fully working interpreter for the Monkey programming language. It's not a book about theory, its focus is working code.

Hi there! My name is Thorsten Ball. I'm a software developer living in Aschaffenburg, Germany, a small city near Frankfurt am Main.
I like to develop, optimize and take care of sophisticated systems. Or put another way: I like to program where the rubber hits the road -- wherever that may be.
But before I leave for work, in the early morning hours, I love to deep dive into other programming topics that interest me: programming languages, interpreters, compilers, web servers, systems programming, Unix, databases. I'm a big fan of digging deep and peeling away at abstraction layers to get a better sense of what I'm working with. It also gives me much more leverage higher up. In short: I love learning new things.
Sometimes I write blog posts about these deep dives, which you can find here, or I give talks about what I found. And in 2016 I even wrote a book about what I learned when trying to build my own programming language.
