2.0 out of 5 stars Just not interesting enough, 1 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Galileo's Dream (Kindle Edition)
I love pretty much everything that Kim Stanley Robinson has written, but this was just a little dull and tedious. I tried to give it a chance, but gave up about halfway through.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-have for any java programmer, 29 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For too long a lot of developers believed that concurrency was an area which only an expert could understand. This book provides a perfectly brief and yet comprehensive guide to building safe and performant multi-threaded applications in java. I would recommend that all java programmers read this book.

Programming in Scala: A Comprehensive Step-by-step Guide
Programming in Scala: A Comprehensive Step-by-step Guide
by Martin Odersky
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Very well written, comprehensive and easy to read, 15 Feb. 2010
This is easily the most readable technical book I've come across. Very solid explanations of the topics, followed by examples for the more complex ideas. Gives programmers who've had experience with object-oriented programming a great introduction to the simplicity of writing code in scala and show the benefits functional programming. It's been difficult to put the book down. I couldn't recommend this book highly enough.
