Does the book have a chapter to compare between OOP and other paradigm, like functional programming? It seems functional programming get popular these days. And it has some advantages over OOP.


To be or not to be. It's a question.

Hi,

There is no chapter in the book on functional programming or closures, etc. However, the primary premise of the book is that object-oriented programming is not a paradigm unto itself and encapsulates various other development paradigms - which is discussed throughout the book.
