This review is from: Programming in Haskell (Paperback)
This book was written for first-year students, meaning that the author took care to make it consise, gentle, easy to understand, and has provided good introductory examples. After getting your head around Haskell, you can then pick up a more full and complex book on the subject.
As a professional developer, lacking prior experience in functional languages, I really enjoyed this introduction. As I was reading it concurrently with books on ML, Scheme, and Erlang, this text always made me feel comfortable with a new topic which the others then explored in more detail.
