Lots awdler rigorous proofs and great discussion of things like strictness and bottom values. Related to this I have seen interviews with Eric Meijer where he talked about preferring the first edition of this book because is was more conceptual and not Haskell specific.
I highly recommend the book to anybody looking for a solid base of functional programming theory.
Introduction to Functional Programming by Richard S. Adolfo rated it liked it Jun 04, Pepe rated it it was amazing Nov 07, The book can be dense at parts, and it is packed with information.
The point this book makes is that progressing through a well-formulated pedagogy one can absorb Monads as easily as one can absorb Sets. Be the first to ask a question about Introduction to Functional Programming.

As in the first edition, there is an emphasis on the fundamental techniques for reasoning about functional programs, and for deriving them systematically from their specifications. This all said, this is a great book on functional programming and Haskell.
Eduardo rated it really liked it Jul 13, After the success of the first edition, Introduction to Functional Programming using Haskell has been thoroughly updated and revised to provide a complete grounding in the principles and techniques of programming with functions.
The four instead of five stars is because, unfor I highly recommend the book to anybody looking for a solid base of functional programming theory.

Julie Functuonal rated it it was amazing Mar 24, There are new chapters on program optimisation, abstract datatypes in a functional setting, and programming in a monadic style.
Look up some of his presentations on YouTube Richard Simpson Bird is a computer scientist. Must do a quick reread.
Published by Prentice Hall first published January 1st Michael rated it it was amazing Mar 17, Want to Read saving…. As a strong point, the technique of program specification and derivation by inverse functions is elegantly described, easily mechanized, and of lasting value. Edzo rated it it was amazing Jul 02, Goodreads progrmaming you keep track of books you want to read.
The four instead of five stars is because, unfortunately, it is not as self-contained as it claims to be, and some introducton the exercises can’t be tackled with only the introduction to the topic given by the author.

While set up as an introductory programmig to languages of the Haskell family, the book actually has a fair share of theory which modern tutorials of Haskell lack.
