I like the content. It doesn't attempt to be exhaustive, but offers a guided tour through the language. I'm using this as a refresher from the last time I tried to learn Scala, and I'm happy with the amount of detail. It's not as complete as some other books.
Reading this on Kindle suffers from a number of problems. The code snippets are poorly formatted. There's a link to an image at the back of the book, but navigating back to the original location is hard. I can't access the table of contents in Kindle Cloud Reader, making navigation hard. Copy and paste appends a silly copyright notice.
I'm happy I bought the book, but I wish I had bought the PDF version instead.

Best book for beginners to learn Scala2017年8月30日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
This is one of the best Scala books for beginners. I really enjoyed reading it and it helped me a lot to learn Scala and understand the concepts of functional programming. When I decided to learn Scala I started with the book "Functional Programming in Scala" by únar Bjarnason and Paul Chiusano but that one didn't work for me because I think that book is not written for people who are not already familiar with Scala and I think is more suitable for library developers and advanced programmers but if you are a beginner with Scala, I highly recommend to start from this book.
Great for starting with Scala2018年9月12日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
A very good book for picking up Scala for the first time. I've written several apps prior to reading and that helped "click" some of the topics better for me. After several chapters I would then continue coding more to really cement the new features as they were explained. Cay's writing is solid and easy to understand. I liked the examples throughout the book as well, and some of the end-chapter questions were surprisingly difficult, but useful IRL. I look forward to a 3rd edition from Cay when Dotty is GA.
Not good for beginners2018年7月15日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
It is pretty high level for beginners. I am beginner and I feel like going through the scala docs while reading this book. It is getting hard for me to understand the complex concepts without any examples in the book.
