If you're new to software development this is not the book for you. If you're looking for Java EE, this is not the book for you.
There is a decent emphasis on Java 8 features, and the authors mentions legacy features only when you might encounter them. The descriptions were good about why some methods became deprecated. Lambdas, streams, and the new concurrency libraries each get their own chapter.
The amount of code shown was just right. There are examples when you need them and they tend to be concise and to the point. Well written sentences and structures made this a pleasure to read.
The author assumes you are familiar with programming concepts already. The book covers only the core language. I thought this singular focus on the language worked really well.
