[Haskell-cafe] Am I the only one having problems with RWH?

I began learning Haskell 9 months ago. I still consider myself a beginner, but I'm progressing 
towards more advanced concepts. I read scientific papers (simpler ones) and books about Haskell 
and functional programming. Right now I'm reading Pearls of Functional Algorithm Design, 
Introduction to Functional Programming, Implementation of Functional Programming Languages and 
Real World Haskell. RWH is causing me a lot of trouble though. This leads me to frustration 
because book covers rather basic material. I just spent another 1,5 hour reading chapter 10 again 
and trying to understand how presented parsing functions work. Even if I am barely able to grasp 
what is going on I feel that I wouldn't know how to write such code by myself. Am I the only one 
having such problems with RWH?
