For beginners only, 2. Juli 2003
The author claims in his introduction that the book is suited to learn funtional programming at an university level.
However, be book starts with lower-basic topics, as "what is a function". Even worse, the author tries to raise the impression that recursions are not lower-basic stuff or even that they are difficult to understand (if they are difficult for someone, then programming is not a good idea at all, IMHO!).
Nethertheless, it helps with an easy start into Functional Programming, ensuring that readers are not overwhelmed. And an easy start-up is far better than one that is too difficult!
Readers who have already advanced knowledge in programming may be bored by a too long introduction into lower basics, and might think twice whether or not the book is worth the money.
