About the Author
Miran Lipovaca is a computer science student in Ljubljana, Slovenia. In addition to his passion for Haskell, he enjoys boxing, playing bass guitar, and, of course, drawing. He has a fascination with dancing skeletons and the number 71, and when he walks through automatic doors he pretends that he's actually opening them with his mind.

The book itself is very nice quality. The wording is very clear and casual which is a very rare find in programming literature. You won't get stuck wondering what words mean but at the same time it offers a very solid grounding (and even some more complex concepts!) for the Haskell language.
Note that the book is essentially available in the form of the "Learn You A Haskell" website but it's always beneficial to have a physical copy.
I would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to study a functional language.
I should probably note that if you are already familiar with functional programming or have some previous knowledge of Haskell then it might be a little slower feeling than to me.
The combination of Real World Haskell and this book is great. This is a friendly book, which will dress you up nicely for the journey into the dragons den (Just kidding, Haskell is a beautiful language!)
If you are an experienced programmer in other language(s) you will often find yourself skipping/glancing over content. I was a bit disappointed that it doesn't go into much depth, but I am giving it 5 stars, because even the subtitle states "A Beginner's guide". And it is a really good one.
