I have two editions of Core JavaII. How does this book differ? Does it still cover the C++ problems which the previous book did?

Hi, if you have Core Java, you are probably not in the market for "Core Java for the Impatient". You already know Java, and if you are looking for a quick intro into the Java 8 feature set, you should instead get "Java SE 8 for the Really Impatient" (http://horstmann.com/java8/). That book introduces readers who are familiar with Java 7 into the new features of Java 8, without making you revisit all of Java.

Cheers,

Cay
