Here are some excerpts from the Amazon reviews for the book:
The example explaining closures made me grasp this staple functional feature more than any I had read before. I "got it", which makes me really appreciate this book and it's author. I've read other explanations, but this one clicked with me. [...] With this explanatory approach I was able to grasp the whole and not just the individual parts. Up to this point, I've always seen functional programming as just a series of techniques without seeing the relations between these techniques and without seeing the full power and possibilities, but now I think I'm beginning to see it more holistically.
This book is great. It is the most gentle and most practical introduction to functional programming that I have come across.
They love me! They really really love me!!
