Overview

It's all in the name: Learn You a Haskell for Great Good! is a hilarious, illustrated guide to this complex functional language. Packed with the author's original artwork, pop culture references, and most importantly, useful example code, this book teaches functional fundamentals in a way you never thought possible.

You'll start with the kid stuff: basic syntax, recursion, types and type classes. Then once you've got the basics down, the real black belt master-class begins: you'll learn to use applicative functors, monads, zippers, and all the other mythical Haskell constructs you've only read about in storybooks.

This book is written in a funny and very smart way. Thanks to the special BN format I can read this on my nook. An online and free content of this book is out there on the book's website. Learning Haskell is not an easy task but with this book everyone can break through the hard shell of this wonderful language. Once inside, the programmer is making one step further towards wonders of human evolution. Studying this book is just the beginning of something much greater than everyone can imagine. I dare you to read and study this book or any other Haskell book out there.
