TechBookReport on 'Programming In Haskell'
TBR writes "While it may appear that to all intents and purposes object oriented programming has achieved dominance in terms of programming language paradigms, there still exist outposts that refuse to submit to the benefits of polymorphism, encapsulation and object inheritance. It's not just that there is a hard-core sticking to procedural coding in C and refusing to go the Java/C#/Python/Ruby route. There are also those who have taken the functional programming route to programming nirvana, particularly those who use the purist functional language of Haskell. And, surprising though it may seem to some, it's a topic that seems to be of increasing interest to the broader development community as well."
