4.0 out of 5 starsA good introduction to Scala, with a caveat
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on August 13, 2022
I thought this book did a very good job of explaining the concepts I needed to get started with Scala. However, one important note is that the 5th edition (which was updated for Scala 3) of this book removes a bunch of the content that was in the 4th edition (which was not updated for Scala 3), opting to instead split it into a second volume, "Advanced Programming in Scala", which is not yet available. Thankfully, the 1st edition is available online for free from the publisher, which has much of the missing content, but I can't help but feel like I bought the wrong book by buying the latest one.
