To make the online reading a little easier, I’ve put a free preview version of Functional Programming, Simplified on fpsimplified.com. That website contains ~40 lessons from the book. For more complete previews, see my original Functional Programming, Simplified page.
The paperback version of “Hello, Scala” is now available. The regular price of the book will be $25, but it’s introductory price is $17.76. Click here to view the book information on Amazon.
The PDF version of Hello, Scala is now available here on Gumroad.com. The regular price will be $20, but it’s currently on sale for just $10.
If you like free things, here’s a link to a free preview of the new version of my book, “Hello, Scala.” The book is 257 pages long, and the free preview contains the first 120 pages of it, so I hope it’s a significant preview.
The new version of the book isn’t currently available for sale, but I hope to release print, PDF, and Kindle versions of it in the next few weeks.
This page contains updates for my book, Hello, Scala. As I find good, new resources related to the book I’ll share them here, along with errata related to the book.

I doubt that most people know it, but authors always enjoy receiving letters of “thanks” like this one. Writing is often a lonely, solitary business, and to hear that your work has helped other people is always satisfying. If there’s a book you’ve read that you really enjoyed, I encourage you to write the author a brief letter of thanks. They’ll appreciate it more than you’ll know.
I thought about writing a “functional programming in Kotlin” book, but I think that Kotlin and Scala are similar enough that Functional Programming, Simplified will be good for Kotlin programmers as well as Scala programmers.
If you’re into puzzles and games of math and logic, The Riddler looks like it will be a good book when it comes out.
I’ve been looking for a way to make Functional Programming, Simplified smaller, but haven’t yet found a way to do that while keeping all the essential information in it. But IMHO, it’s still a heck of a lot easier than reading all of these books on the right:
