All told, a wonderful book that is especially well suited to someone new to programming.
It has exercises to work, with answers in an appendix. You can code along with this text. It's nicely progressive. Stuff, for the most part; no fluff. Note that you are on your own, however, as far as getting OCaml installed on your machine.
If you already hack OCaml at all, move along. But if you're outside looking in and you want a well-written, hand-holding, easily read ice-breaker, then I would heartily recommend. Seriously, if you have any doubts about your capacity to get started with OCaml, this will lay your fears to rest -- assuming you get it installed OK (don't worry, it's easy too https://ocaml.org/docs/install.html).
