With Java 8 adding lambdas will it pollute the java code with functional programming constrcutors. Author, can you please provide your views.

"Pollute" or "greatly simplify". It's a matter of opinion.

In those languages that do support it I find them to be a great tool, but like any tool you can misuse them if you really try.

I don't think it will greatly change the way I code or make things less OO. I already use anonymous classes a lot and so have been passing around functionality as data for some time. Lambdas will just reduce the boilerplate required to do that and will make the code more expressive.
