The Haskell wikibook is also good, available online as HTML or PDF:


Personally, I found that Learn You a Haskell started to get obscure at 
about the chapter on monads, just where the most clarity is needed, and 
that the wikibook was clearer.  But different strokes for different 
folks.  (I haven't looked at that section of Real-World Haskell yet.)
