From the Back Cover
Programming in Scala Third Edition is the definitive book on Scala, the new language for the Java Platform that blends object-oriented and functional programming concepts into a unique and powerful tool for developers.
Coauthored by the designer of the Scala language, this authoritative book will teach you, one step at a time, the Scala language and the ideas behind it.
The book is carefully crafted to help you learn. The first few chapters will give you enough of the basics that you can already start using Scala for simple tasks. The entire book is organized so that each new concept builds on concepts that came before--a series of steps that promises to help you master the Scala language and the important ideas about programming that Scala embodies.
A comprehensive tutorial and reference for Scala, this book covers the entire language and important libraries.
If I were to pick a language to use today other than Java, it would be Scala.
--James Gosling, creator of Java

With this book, it is amazing as I finally understand companion objects, why we need Nil at the end of List, then general rules of parentheses (not brackets!), then right operand and so on!
I am not finished this book yet, it is a big book but fun to read and can learn from every pages (at least, to chapter 16).
An absolute recommend!
