I would like to see pdf page 40 , Lambda expressions as page 1.
Revisiting java prior to jdk 8 turns me off, but that's just me.
I also like typing along.( A copy of the code is handy though.)
I'm a type along guy, like in building a project incrementally.

You guys are clearly "Virtuoso's" in the Industry.

Thank you,
douglas

Re: a thought
Hi Douglas,

Thanks for your feedback. Indeed we are trying our best to make the book as practical as possible with lots of code examples and quiz to try. It would be great to start the book with the lambda expression chapter, however, we feel some initial background is required for Java programmers that may not have a lot of experience yet. Experienced programmers should be able to skip straight away to chapter 3. We will try and make this clearer in the updated version that we push later this month.

You can find the source code of our examples here: https://github.com/java8/LambdasInAction

Please let us know anything you think may be useful towards improving the book in general!

Thanks again for reading our book!
Raoul
