I don't know who this book is for. A professional programmer will find its prosaic, glancing, style frustrating. A coding newbie will find its level daunting. We're used to programming language books that use the first, and maybe the second, chapter to demonstrate the novel features of the language, without explaining the details. The details are left for the subsequent chapters, where they are comprehensively covered. "Programming in Scala" never seems to shift gears from that "first chapter" mindset. It is almost as if it is a collection of overly wordy Dr. Dobbs articles on different aspects of the language. Somewhere around page 220 I gave up and moved on to Pollak's "Beginning Scala" and then, probably the most satisfying, Subramaniam's "Programming Scala".
