Thanks for telling us about the problem. There are new chapters on program optimisation, abstract data 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.
In the popular literature about Haskell a lot of digital ink is spilled over Monads, but really they’re no big deal conceptually. The book is self-contained, assuming no prior knowledge of programming and is suitable as an introductory undergraduate text for first- or second-year students. It was released before the Haskell 98 report was finished, and we are already using the Haskell report, while a new one is in the making.
