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.

I have Martin Odersky's "Programming in Scala" which I use as a reference manual and half way through the Coursera Scala Programming course. This is an excellent tutorial for an experienced Java/C++ developer and gives many comparisons between Scala and Java & C++ and it is a very easy read.
I'm working my way through all the examples in this book and have found no issues to date with any. It states it doesn't cover everything (in Scala) but it's enough to get you developing real world applications. Topics not covered can be referenced in Martin Odersky's "Programming in Scala".
Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to any aspiring Scala Developer.

...however I’m struggling with the exercises. They are quite complex and it is often difficult ult to even understand what the requirement is. There appears to be no solutions on line from the publisher which suggests that the author has not even solved their own exercises.
Some better thought out and graded exercises which reinforced what has been written would greatly improve this book.
