This book contains a lot of Java (namely unit tests) along with Scala. I feel like the tests should have been written in Scala too, this is a Scala book after all.
What annoyed me most about this book, were the links to more information. Instead of explaining the concepts briefly, there are some 10 links provided, such as "Some expensive objects may need to be lazy-initialized. Refer to http://martinfowler.com/bliki/LazyInitialization.html for a very nice introduction to lazy initialization." This makes the book feel unfinished.
