I was excited to see a pattern book on Scala and the publisher, Springer, normally has good books. This book is an exception. The content is shallow. If you have the GoF book, this might provide some guidance on the Scala implementations, but the quality of print and graphics is just not worth the price.Some patterns have as little as 3 pages. Code samples are presented as graphic images and the graphics are horrible. The code samples are barely readable. Check out the Kindle version, the graphics don't get better in print.The first 50 pages of this 327 pages book covers UML, that leaves precious few pages to cover dozens of patterns. AND, no index is provided.Absolutely the worst Spring book I've ever purchased, and I own many.
How did this get published? Feels rushed and incomplete. If you have ANY prior knowledge of design patterns you do not need this book. The translations to "functional" are poor and non-idiomatic. While not completely useless, the price would suggest much more quality than is actually present. I think with some more work this could have been a great asset. Unfortunately it falls very short.
