As part of my quest to learn a functional language, I picked 4 books about F#. Being that I am a beginner, I dove right into this one:
Instead of the ‘hello world’ examples that you normally expect with a beginning book, it was a survey of the language constructs – and the code examples were not designed to teach rather they were used to illustrate a point –a subtle but important distinction.
After 3 chapters, I put that book down and picked up this book:
Now this is a great book. It explains things in a progressive and hands-on fashion. It’s too bad they called it “Expert” in the title – because it is actually a beginning book. In fact, I would recommend ditching the Beginning F# book completely and diving right into the Expert F# book if you want to learn the language.
