More recently, Java Champion Cay Horstmann has thrown his hat into the ring with his much lauded book, Scala for the Impatient, which has a foreward written by none other than Martin Odersky, the inventor of Scala who called it “a joy to read” and the “best introduction to Scala”. Odersky liked the basic concept of the book so much that he asked Horstmann if the first section could be made available as a free download on the Typesafe Website, something Horstmann graciously assented to.

I learned Java from Horstmann's Core Java 1 and 2 way back when. I will probably pick this book up.
