I would pay more for a version of this book with the cringing attempts at 'humour', and folksy style removed.

If you are disciplined enough to be able to ignore the cringing, folksy style, unfunny 'humour' and pointless, irrelevant cartoons, this is actually quite a good book. Why, oh why, do authors in the programming field feel the need for this bizarre style. This book is not aimed at young children, or even beginners are programming - no-one who was a beginner would get past the first few pages, and it is clearly aimed at the experienced or professional programmer who already understands the principles of programming but wants to learn Haskell. So write as though you are addressing such people, please! The book could be half the length, a lot less annoying, and a lot more useful as such.
