Dear Author,

I have read your first edition, that had really some meaty stuff in it, I was inspired by your work, my best wishes for your new edition.

As someone who stayed on with Java since 1.1 days, next to the Java 1.5 revision which came out with a bang, the bunch of language features  once for all changed the way
we approached type safety with generics ....in my mind, Java1.8 stays out as the next big paradigm shift in the language evolution cycle.
Though came a bit late on the scene with the functional programming support,Streams...Java 8 is going to entice the new audience also keeping the java loyalists inspired.

What is your take on this?

Thanks
Sathya Priya
