This book is a must have for any .NET developer.
To be clear, this book is excellent and well-written. There are numerous examples and in-depth, detailed explanations. I highly recommend reading it - particularly if you want to get into some of the gritty details that you may not find if you aren't talking to the guy who knows the language best.
With that said, this book has a high "ramp up" factor. At the time I bought it, I had no experience in F#. The change of mindset, from imperative to functional perhaps would have been handled better with a book focused directly on that rather than learning the specific ins and outs of a language. If I did not have the drive to power through some portions of the book, I may have been bogged down in details that didn't matter at the particular time.
As long as you keep this second part in mind, I highly recommend Expert F# 2.0. It's well-written, clear, and technically in-depth covering all the major aspects (and many detailed aspects) of the language.

Very good introduction to the F#, and to functional programming...
somewhat high level though... some subjects would have been better covered more in depth...
I've had this for a couple months now and I have found myself going back to this continually to help increase my understanding of F# and functional programming in general. Read morePublished on December 12, 2012 by Baker
