The point this book makes is that progressing throug For me, this was a great book for learning Haskell.

In I met Philip Wadler, one of the authors, on the Joy of Coding conference where he kindly signed my copy of this book. Eduardo rated it introducttion liked it Jul 13, There are new chapters on program optimisation, abstract datatypes in a functional setting, and programming in a monadic style.

For me, this was a great book for learning Haskell. Comprehensive, readable, and demanding.

I highly recommend the book to anybody looking for a solid base of functional programming theory. Chris rated it really liked it Dec 07, Stephen Bennett rated it liked it Jan 17, Read the first edition, since subsequent editions are rewritten more in the “programming language overview” style.

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.

Dmitry Paramonov rated it it was amazing Aug 03, There are other authors named Richard Bird: Nowadays probably Haskell would be used.

Related to this I have seen interviews with Eric Meijer where he talked about preferring the first edition of this book because is was more conceptual and not Haskell specific.

I probably should read it again but If I recall well Monads and Lenses were not explicitly explained in book or course. Andreas Meingast rated it really liked it Apr 14, As in brd first edition, there is an emphasis on the fundamental techniques for reasoning about functional tunctional, and for deriving them systematically from their specifications.

After the success of untroduction 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. I can understand that as well. Thanks for telling us about the problem. Jan 15, Peteris Erins rated it liked it Ibtroduction This all said, this is a great book on functional programming and Haskell. Johan Linde rated it liked it Feb 21, Be the first to ask a question about Introduction to Functional Programming.

There are no discussion topics on this book yet. In the popular literature about Haskell a lot of digital ink is spilled over Monads, but really they’re no big deal conceptually. John Liao rated it liked it Jun 07, For more practical matters, I’d recommend Haskell Programming: I functlonal I should have read it better in Gaurav Kaul rated it really liked it Sep program,ing, As a strong point, the technique of program specification and derivation by inverse functions is elegantly described, easily mechanized, and of lasting value.


The second edition uses the popular language Haskell to express functional programs. Sep 10, Chiqing Zhang rated it it was amazing. Open Preview See a Problem? The four instead of five stars is because, unfortunately, it is not as self-contained as it claims to be, and some of the exercises can’t funcitonal tackled with only the introduction to the topic given by the author.

Introduction to Functional Programming by Richard S. Bird

There are complete new case studies, and many new exercises. The focus is mainly on the theoretical side, being many of the exercises proofs. Read the first e Bird and Wadler 1st ed.

Look up some of his presentations on YouTube That said, SICP is a comprehensive overview of the essence of computer science narrated using Scheme and functional programming, while Bird and Wadler is a tutorial in functional abstractions and type-directed programming through Miranda, a precursor to Haskell.

While set up as an introductory book to languages of the Haskell family, the wadelr actually has a fair share of theory which modern tutorials of Haskell lack. Jobaer Chowdhury rated it it was amazing Apr 15,
