This review is from: Programming in Haskell (Paperback)
"Programming in Haskell" is among the most elegant computer language books I've read, and it will go on my shelf next to The Little Schemer and Godel, Escher, Bach.
I'm coming from the typical experienced C/C++/Java/Python background, with some past toying with Scheme.
The text presented an enlightening and well explained new concept in typed functional programming on nearly every page, with Haskell used as an excellent medium.
My only regret is that now I realize just how impoverished C/C++ and my other day-to-day languages are - although the functional approach is infecting my style even there.
