New book: Haskell from the Very Beginning

The book Haskell from the Very Beginning, has now been published. A printed copy may be obtained from Amazon for $29.99:

In Haskell from the Very Beginning John Whitington takes a no-prerequisites approach to teaching the basics of a modern general-purpose programming language. Each small, self-contained chapter introduces a new topic, building until the reader can write quite substantial programs. There are plenty of questions and, crucially, worked answers and hints.

Haskell from the Very Beginning will appeal both to new programmers, and to experienced programmers eager to explore functional languages such as Haskell. It is suitable both for formal use within an undergraduate or graduate curriculum, and for the interested amateur.

Alternatively, a PDF copy may be obtained for $19.99 from the book’s website:

Thanks to all those who have helped in recent weeks with useful comments on an earlier draft.
