Best book to explain functional aspects of Scala to Java developers...
The author has also written "Programming Groovy" so he's versed in JVM languages. The functional portions of Scala (closure, partial functions, currying, etc) are clearly explained using coding examples and an easy-to-follow narrative.
"Programming in Scala" by Odersky et al is still the best Scala text (the Scala equivalent of K&R) but "Programming Scala" is great to hit the ground running.
I have bought all of the Scala books over the past year and "Programming Scala" is the best for a quick start for Java developers.
