I’m proud to say that the Scala Cookbook is on O’Reilly’s bestselling list. While I hope that some of this is due to my work to “simplify, simplify, simplify,” I also know that it’s a reflection of (a) Scala being an awesome programming language, and (b) having some good reviewers kick me in the butt when I needed it. My “dream goal” when writing the Cookbook was that it would help make Scala more accessible to Java developers, so this gives me some hope that it can succeed in that mission.
