4.0 out of 5 stars Useful in gaining understanding, 18 Feb. 2014
This review is from: Miranda: The Craft of Functional Programming (International Computer Science Series) (Paperback)
For a novice programmer this book and the Miranda language are a useful way to really understand functions, list processing, recursion etc. You can gain an appreciation of program design, and this book has a great Miranda reference section. Buy second hand though, as this is not a book for regular use later as a developer, but one to learn from as a beginner to programming in general.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Clear Explanation of an elegant language, 5 Feb. 2013

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Found this book in the UEA library whilst looking for something else. Couldn't stop reading it but since I am not a student I couldn't take it home so I bought my own copy.

It's great - very clear explanations - interesting exercises and I really like the Miranda Language and environment.

I wish it was more widely used, it's such a clean language, more elegant than SML and simpler than Haskell. Not that I am a expert in either of these other languages but Miranda just gelled with me :)

4.0 out of 5 stars A very good book for begineers in programming, 18 Feb. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Miranda: The Craft of Functional Programming (International Computer Science Series) (Paperback)
The book is a very easy to read book, starting with the fundermental basics of programming and also goes into a lot more depth later on, with Case Studies and alternative approaches to program design. It also has extensive reference material.
