5.0 out of 5 stars Best technical book Ive read the last 10 years, 28 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Java SE8 for the Really Impatient: A Short Course on the Basics (Paperback)
It is clean, clear, and without the endless loooong descriptions of everything and nothing, so common in technical books.
Instead it's precise and to the point, without leaving important stuff out.
This guy knows his java, but equally important: He can write.

It's VERY well written !

5.0 out of 5 stars Informative and well written, 14 May 2014
This review is from: Java SE8 for the Really Impatient: A Short Course on the Basics (Paperback)
Excellent book. Well written, concise, incredibly informative and devoid of any waffle.

This is how tech books should be written.

If you want to read about Java 8's lambda expressions, this is the book to get. It thoroughly trounces the poor quality of O'Reilly's "Java 8 Lambdas".

5.0 out of 5 stars In-depth Understanding and Usage of What's New in Java 8, 8 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Java SE8 for the Really Impatient: A Short Course on the Basics (Paperback)
I am not a professional java programmer, but use java for all sorts of "fun" projects. I was keen to gain some in-depth understanding of the new facilities in Java 8 - especially lambda functions and streams. I tried various internet resources but found nothing that really gave me a complete picture of how the new features are used and how they complement each other. I took a chance on buying this book, and have not been disappointed. It covers everything I wanted to know (and much more). It includes common-sense advice coupled with intellectual rigor, and I would thoroughly recommend it for anyone wanting to quickly gain a detailed understanding of the new features in Java 8, and their usage.
