This is a THEORY book, there is a bit of ML in it (but not much).
If you are having issues understanding the Functional Language Paradigm, take a step back and get this book. I struggled for a year trying to understand Functional Programming and after reading this book and going through the exercises, I had a better picture of what to do and could step into Haskell and Erlang easier than before.
I think, everybody who intends to learn Functional Programming would read this book, first.
The book is much better than Barendregt's book if you are simply looking to understand some of the concepts behind lambda calculus and not a full blown theoretical exposition of all that lambda calculus has to offer. Personally I just want to learn lambda calculus to help develop my intuition of functional programming languages.
