'… a rather unusual and very interesting book for the functional programming community. The author's style is wonderful, and he is good at explaining the material … unique in the field of functional programming'. M. Ivanovi´c, Artificial Intelligence
'… a novel and intuitively appealing approach to teaching functional programming … could profitably be used for an advanced undergraduate course focusing on domain-specific languages in this area.' Journal of Functional Programming
This book teaches functional programming as a way of thinking and problem solving, using Haskell, the most popular purely functional language. Rather than using the conventional examples commonly found in other programming language books, the author uses examples drawn from multimedia applications, including graphics, animation, and computer music.
