Is the Scala Cookbook worth the price? (A brief note)

At $50 or $60, I know the Scala Cookbook, 2nd Edition — estimated at 700+ pages — is expensive. But if it helps to know it, I’ve been working on one recipe for three days. And this isn’t the only one. Asking questions on Gitter channels, the Contributors website, testing and reporting bugs for developers, digging through code. All so you don’t have to. ;)
