Hi,

I don't find some sample chapters or table of contents online. What does this book look like? Does this book cover lambda, functional programming, Option etc.

Hello Qunfeng,

Thank you for the question.

I don't see a sample chapter for J8PG yet... however, you can go to Amazon and select "Search Inside this book" to see page content for the previous version of the book, the Java 7 Pocket Guide:
http://www.amazon.com/Java-Pocket-Guide-Robert-Liguori/dp/1449343562/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1398771190&sr=8-1&keywords=java+pocket+guide#reader_1449343562

And chapter 19 does provide an introduction (7 pages) into Lambda Expressions.

Q1. I enjoy books which have lots of cheat sheets.

Q2 I wish a book where there is lots of mind maps of the key concepts.

Are these in this book?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
