Learn You a Haskell for Great Good! - Book review

Finally! I have finished reading Learn You a Haskell for Great Good! and here's my review -;)

After learning Erlang, I decided it was a good idea to get hardcore and learn an even more "Pure" functional programming language...Haskell was of course my best shot...

This book is just pretty awesome...it has 404 pages...so it's a big book...

The examples are really nice and easy to follow...of course...once you get your head around Haskell and it's weird way of doing things...after a few headaches and curses...you found yourself loving the language...

This book will teach you about recursion, pattern matching, guards, monoids, and a handful of things that you couldn't find on a imperative language...



If you want to learn Haskell...this book is definitely for you...written with lots of humor and great examples it makes learning Haskell a real joy...I would recommend it a 100%...

If you haven't ever try a functional language...I will recommend you to do so...you will not regret it...you will become smart and a better developer...sure...you will get frustrated a thousand of times...but there's a price to pay when it comes to becoming better at something...

Haskell will help you to become better and this book will guide you through the hard path...
