Haskell is a purely functional language that allows programmers
to rapidly develop clear, concise, and correct software.  The
language has grown in popularity in recent years, both in teaching
and in industry.  This book is based on the author's experience
of teaching Haskell for more than twenty years.  All concepts
are explained from first principles and no programming experience
is required, making this book accessible to a broad spectrum
of readers.  While Part I focuses on basic concepts, Part II
introduces the reader to more advanced topics.

This new edition has been extensively updated and expanded to
include recent and more advanced features of Haskell, new examples
and exercises, selected solutions, and freely downloadable lecture
slides and example code.  The presentation is clean and simple,
while also being fully compliant with the latest version of
the language, including recent changes concerning applicative,
monadic, foldable, and traversable types.



Part I. Basic Concepts:
1. Introduction
2. First steps
3. Types and classes
4. Defining functions
5. List comprehensions
6. Recursive functions
7. Higher-order functions
8. Declaring types and classes
9. The countdown problem
Part II. Going Further:
10. Interactive programming

12. Monads and more
13. Monadic parsing
14. Foldables and friends
15. Lazy evaluation

17. Calculating compilers
Appendix A. Selected solutions
Appendix B. Standard prelude
