The four instead of five stars is because, unfor I highly recommend the book to anybody looking for a solid base of functional programming theory. While set up as an introductory book to languages of the Haskell family, the book actually has a fair share of theory which modern tutorials of Haskell lack.

The four instead of five stars is because, unfortunately, it is not as self-contained as it claims to be, and some of the exercises can’t be tackled with only the introduction to the topic introxuction by the author. Hardcoverpages.

Read the first e Bird and Wadler 1st ed. And Miranda although outdated can still be run if you have ijtroduction that runs Solaris Ilumnios.

There are new chapters on program optimisation, abstract datatypes in a functional setting, and programming in a monadic style. Comprehensive, readable, and demanding.
