Functional Programming in Java 8 is a paradigm shift - this book helps the java programmer understand this new way of thinking about how we compose our objects to benefit from FP. As a Java Professional of many years, this book really helped me understand this new way (in Java) to write robust, reusable, and efficient code.
This book is not for novice but intermediate or higher.
The author's constant hyping and cheering for the new FP features becomes annoying fast. He over uses adjectives like, "powerful", "easy", and "effortless". The new features are nice, but they're not that much more powerful than Java already was. Any program you can write in Java 8, you can also write in Java 7 or 6 or 5 ...
Java's new FP features can make code simpler in some cases, which is good. But these new features can also make the code harder to understand. It's possible to make code too concise - fit too much on a single line (as some programmers can't help themselves from doing). Unfortunately, this can makes code harder to understand by someone who must maintain it later. The FP features should be used with care.
I didn't realize that Amazon has a seven day return policy on Kindle books. Had I known this, I would've returned it.
I don't recommend this book or author.
