Hi. I bought Heads First Design Patterns 1st edition a few days back. Now I found out theres a 2nd edition for Java 8. My question is, is it ok if I use the older book because my printer is dead and I can't print out this "send back" thing. I mean it's no cheap book so ... I hope the changes are not too many in the book ... I got a book New in Java 8 (Lambdas & Streams, Date/Time API and Java FX). Also some more changes are listed. Is that book enough and I don't neccessarily need the 2nd edition of Heads First Design Patterns? Thanks!

My feeling is that the Patterns book will be fine in Java 7 (or whatever they used) especially if you have another book specifically on Java 8. Design Patterns can be learned in any language.
