    La prima edizione si intitolava Beginning Haskell Giustamente in questa seconda edizione il titolo stato cambiato Impossibile da studiare come primo libro su haskell Argomenti trattati velocemente Si danno per scontati molti concetti importanti Utile comunque come approfondimento.

    Haskell has a reputation of being hard to learn This book makes it appear so easy This book is amazingly well written , structure and explains the concepts so well I love the examples and their explanation I wish I had this book a few years ago.
