This is a fast-paced guide that will help you to write real-world applications by utilizing a wide range of functional techniques and styles.
I have tried to learn functional programming before with F# or Haskell and I found all the books to be really complex. This book really helps you to understand some of the most important functional programming concepts. I found this book to be a great introduction to functional programming it is true that it might not contain real world or up to date examples but no other book makes functional programming as easier to understand.

These 3 books never leave my desktop! I have read them all cover to cover, Something I have never done with any other programming books I have ever bought. My bookshelf is littered with Half read, flicked through tomes of regret.
I can honestly say, that getting to understand the worlds most misunderstood programming language has probably been the most enjoyable experience of my programming career!
The authors, style makes this book very approachable, which is a change from a majority of the programming books out there. Most books are either way too academic or far too dumbed down. I feel the author got it just right!
Great book. It doesn't always have what I need but when it does it helps A TON.
