How valid is "Java Performance: The Definitive Guide: Getting the Most Out of Your Code 1st Edition" for Java 8?

I am interested in purchasing "Java Performance: The Definitive Guide: Getting the Most Out of Your Code 1st Edition". I read a sample, and it mentions Java 8, but it seems to be more of a focus on 7. Will the topics and information in this book also apply to Java 8, or do i need to wait for the newest version?

  • Hi Adam,
    This title was released in 2014, so I don't know how current it still is or how useful it may be to your studies. I don't see that we have another version that has been announced at this time, but we do have some other books on Java 8:
