Hi everybody!

I will be more than happy to answer any question about the book, or to discuss any subject related to functional programming in Java , whether technical or not.

Will the book have an old costume on the cover when it finally comes out?

Much thanks to everybody for having asked so enlightening questions. As everyone knows, there is much more to learn in questions that in answers.

Do not hesitate to ask more questions if you have some. I will be watching this thread.

Thanks again!

Pierre-Yves
