I am just learning about Java and many other programming types. However, I always have been curious most of all with Java. I hear it used often and I've already taken a few course online about Java. Though when I saw the book, Functional Programming in Java by Pierre-Yves Saumont and that it was about improving the programs, I knew I needed to have it! I guess you can say, I'm very obsessed to learn coding and programming.
Well first off, this book isn't bad for anyone like me trying to learn Java. It begins by explaining what the book is and how it will help, while also what it really isn't and what not to expect. Also, like the book says in the title this will cover all things about functions in Java.
What I think that makes a book from manning different from most is that they always include a summary piece, something to end each chapter your reading. It keeps you informed to what you've learned. Plus, in the beginning, you'll get an idea to what you'll be learning. It's just such a nice thing that they add this to each book on programming! So, when I read this book I feel like I'm in a class, but learning on my own. Since, everything about functions in Java is explained on each chapter, like a real course on functions.
Finally, here is something I always love to do with a book like this, practicing along the way. I find I don't learn anything without not doing it myself. Therefore, if I can code along with the book, getting the same results it's all the best! This way I can learn and it sticks in my brain a bit more than just reading and looking at the examples. So, this book in all is a perfect guide on Functions. The author did a wonderful job setting it up and with plenty of helpful examples located inside to help anyone understand functions in Java.
