This review is from: Programming in Scala: A Comprehensive Step-by-Step Guide (Kindle Edition)
This is probably the best programming language book I've ever read. It is clear, thorough, logical, with a dry humour from time to time. The authors don't just describe the syntax and features - they explain why the language is the way it is, and how it fits together.
This is all the more impressive given that Scala (taken as a whole) is not a simple language compared to Java, Python etc.
