Hello, jolly ranchers!

I just finished this book and it comes out in around two weeks. I am prepared to discuss Java 8, World Cup soccer and news stories that begin with the words "Florida Man."

I would like to take a look into the book. Is this already published and available?

No.

But the link suggests you are chair of the RSS committee whereas the RSS website suggests you aren't. That led me to think it is out of date.

Hi Rogers

Welcome to the Ranch!

Very important first question - who is going to win the World Cup?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
