Probably good as a second book, but not a beginners book
- Some code just doesn't compile (I don't know why, I am a beginner ;-)
- Graphics code runs only on Windows
- By using a nice typeset for code in the book it is not equivalent to the code to be written to get correct code
- Code examples build too much on previous chapters
- Code examples are across page boundaries which is deadly for a language which uses syntactically significant whitespace (indentation)
- Most Haskell implementations provide an interactive mode, why is it not used in such a tutorial book?

This book takes a nice approach to teaching functional programming. Paul Hudak uses fun examples, with applications to multimedia. Early on you are using the graphics library to make shapes in windows, and by the end there is Haskore, a cool way to compose music. However, these examples are not JUST fun, they also serve as nice examples of how to think about and construct functional programs, in domains where functional programs really excel. If you ever thought about learning what this stuff was about, this book is the right choice!

Für Einsteiger, ist dieses Buch zu empfehlen. Aber wer das Einsteigerdasein hinster sich lassen will könnte enttäuscht werden. Ich hatte gehofft, dass mir dieses Buch den nächsten Schritt erleichtern würde, aber das Meiste war mir schon geläufig.
