F# Books

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.

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.
