This week's book giveaway is in the Reactive Progamming forum. We're giving away four copies of Reactive Streams in Java: Concurrency with RxJava, Reactor, and Akka Streams and have Adam Davis on-line! See this thread for details.
Would you say that a person who currently works with Java 4 and has some knowledge of Java 5 (but does not use it daily) would need a more basic book, or would you expect that person to also benefit from this new book?

The book certainly assumes familiarity with generic types, like Comparable<String> or List<Locale>. If you aren't familiar with generics, you should first brush up on those. The streams library is going to be pretty incomprehensible otherwise.
