First class introduction to Haskell,
This review is from: The Haskell Road to Logic, Maths and Programming (Texts in Computing, Vol. 4) (Paperback)
This is a great book which I enjoyed reading and found more useful than other introductory Haskell texts with the exception of Bird, although it may not be the best choice if you are most interested in the practical aspects of the Haskell. The emphasis is on foundations and language features (which are all Haskell 98) are introduced as they occur naturally in the discussion of a number of Number Theory and Logic problems.
This book is well named -- it aims to teach the three disciplines of its title in equal measure and learning Haskell is presented as the channel for that, rather than being a goal in itself.
