an excellent starting point,
This review is from: Programming in Haskell (Paperback)I purchased this book roughly a year ago now, when I approached it then I did find some difficulty but as the months went on, attempting the exercises and writing some of my own small programs, the value of the book has increased and I think I have understood its intentions better.
I recommend this book both as a starting point and as desk reference for the standard prelude for those times when thinking is required, one can lazily flip through the pages while thinking about possible approaches to solving problems.
For those that have had some trouble with this book, it's just a matter of persistence, practice and patience.
The writing style is clear and to the point, thank you Graham Hutton for this excellent starting point and your other contributions to the functional programming arena.
