Grokking Functional Programming is a practical book written especially for object-oriented programmers. It will help you map familiar ideas like objects and composition to FP concepts such as programming with immutable data and higher-order functions. You will learn how to write concurrent programs, how to handle errors and how to design your solutions with modularity and readability in mind. And you'll be pleased to know that we skip the academic baggage of lambda calculus, category theory, and the mathematical foundations of FP in favor of applying functional programming to everyday programming tasks. At the end of the book, you'll be ready to pick a functional language and start writing useful and maintainable software.
An absolutely wonderful book for someone that has tried and failed to understand functional programming.
