    Well, that's a pleasant surprise.

    Thanks, Josh, for hanging out with us this week and answering questions. I look forward to getting as much out my copy of your new book as I did the previous two editions.

    Let me leave you all with a little puzzle: there are two changes to the cover picture that relate directly to the new material. Can you find them?

    Oh great, a puzzle... Just what I need right now.

    The Tax Man cometh and he's got a hard deadline. Now I have to choose between getting my taxes done or figuring out what the changes to the cover picture relate to. I looked at the cover on my copy of the 2nd edition and see that there are a few things that were taken away and a couple of things that were added: I'm not quite sure what they are but it looks like a flashlight and a multi-tester. Hmmm... this is going to bug me all weekend

    Ah! That makes a lot of sense, Tim. Thanks for that because I never would have made the connections. I was keyed in on the things that were taken away, like the vise and a couple of other things. And I was coming at it from a much more abstract, analogy-driven way of looking at the changes, totally missing the shape of the tool and focusing on what that tool might actually be and what it represented in Java. Of course, it's about lambda expressions! I don't think I would have ever seen the stream connection.

    Now I can focus on getting my taxes done.

    Well done, Tim! By the way, the lambda-shaped tool is a bevel:

    I was looking for a jigsaw among the tools, but I couldn't find one.
