In over 20 years of reading programming books on a ton of different languages and frameworks this has to be my favourite. Starts off slowly covering language fundamentals and builds nicely towards more advanced language features with a lot of great functional programming insights to garner along the way....

Although it's probably not worth an upgrade if you have the second edition as you're only getting:

- Implicit classes
- Creating your own AnyVals
- String interpolation
- Futures and concurrency, including new methods added in 2.12 and asynchronous testing with Futures in ScalaTest 3.0
- Wildcard types
- The close integration of Scala 2.12 and Java 8, most significantly the new ability to use function literals to express instances of SAM types
- The latest recommendations for Scala coding style
- New recommendations for writing hashCode
- The context bounds syntax for type classes

But if you regularly program in Scala why not treat yourself to a newly printed coffee stain free copy, confident in the knowledge everything is up to date with 2.12 ;-)

Note it's an excellent companion to the highly recommended free online coursera course 'Functional Programming in Scala' which is also provided by the language designer Mr Odersky himself!

Comprehensive and well written, however some of the examples are overly academic (rational numbers, logic circuits) and do not really exemplify the language features in the typical settings you're likely to use them in -- a small issue on the whole however.

A mighty tome of over 800 pages. Very easy read. Found the index a bit lacking. Having been a Java Developer for 20 years wanted to jump straight to 'Calling Scala from Java", the index didn't help.
