A very good second book,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Real World Haskell (Taschenbuch)
Being totally new to Haskell and new to Functional Programming I tried this as my first book on the topic - and failed. There is a lot to be said about Haskell and this book tells a lot about it. In my position as an absolut beginner, it was to much to handle. I was fascinated but could not really keep track what was important and what was not.
So I bought Programming in Haskell by Graham Hutton. This book was far less complete and thus allowed for a far easier start. With the basic understanding for language and concepts from a beginners book one can easily go to Real World Haskell which is what the title says: A book on how to use the fabulous concepts of Haskell in the Real World.
Maybe people with a better background than me could as well start with RWH. You can preview all of the book online and you will probably find that there is nothing comparable on the market.

Yes, I’d say it’s a book for people who already read a basic tutorial or know programming a bit in general, and want to ”get real” wrt. Haskell programming.
For somebody who never programmed before, Haskell is a bit much in general. Even though functional programming certainly is a better start than C/C++, which poisons your brain with idiocy.

When I wrote, that I was an absolute beginner, I meant to Haskell and mostly to functional programming. I did have some programming experience before. Initially I started caring about Haskell to get a better grip of functional programming elements in python, which was my main language at that point.
Starting with C++ or starting with Haskell will both have pros and cons and I don't think it will pay off for any reader here, to engage in language wars. Most readers of the level of this book will hopefully have experienced, that this kind of thinking will not really help a lot. A discussion of C/C++ and Haskell is certainly beyond the scope of Amazon book reviews. Learning "pure" functional programming with Haskell is certainly very valuable for later use of functional aspects in multi-paradigm languages.
