If you really want to find out if Haskell is for you, you need to try 
and do things you already know how to do in the other languages.

For this reason I found that "Algorithms: A Functional Programming 
Approach" was great for showing me where Haskell excelled and why it 
was the language for me.

I also have "The Haskell School of Expression" (the book I first learnt 
haskell from) and "The craft of functional programming".  They are both 
great books.

As far as learning about Haskell, I have learnt the most from doing the 
"Implementing a functional language" tutorial.  However, if you are not 
interested in compilers, this would not be a good option.
