Something along the lines of "The Art of Functional Programming".
HSoE is great as a starting textbook. However, it just scratches the
surfaces - and after that, trying to grok monads keeps you occupied for
a year or longer, keeping you distracted from developing other skills
(such as writing and reading point-free code, or developing an intuition
for curried code, or digging into a combinator library).
