4.0 out of 5 stars What a pointless language!!, 25 Oct. 2002
By 
This review is from: Introduction Functional Programming (Prentice-Hall Series in Computer Science) (Paperback)
Although i think the language is dead and i would never chosse to learn it, this book did me a big favour when it came to passing my degree and i take my hat of to Mr. Bird. Its simple and informative, starts from the bottom and works up slowly, with loads of examples and explainations about how it all work. If you've gotta learn Haskall then this is the book

Dead language?? Just google 'functional programming' and do a bit of background reading and you'll see how powerful it is and how FP is appearing more in the mainstream by being incorporated into java,c# etc. Oxford University have an amazing bunch of academics at the Computing Lab who specialize in this area and attending their lectures was a glimpse into an exciting future for programming in general - haskell just happens to be the FP language of choice for many.
