My Background: I have a lot of experience in java, but didn't do much with java 1.8 and I didn't read the first edition.
I liked chapter 2 (little bit slow for an experienced developer, but probably good for an beginner) up to 2.3.4.
It was good build up to lamda's and was expecting to go to chapter 3 (after a summary of course smilie
But I got 4 other examples referencing that I needed to read chapter 3. For me it didn't add anything and broke the flow of the chapter.
I assume you wanted to show that we need lamda's in more situations, but in my opinion it would be better just to summarize those situations in one or two lines per example.
