Thanks to the hard work ! 

Do you plan to sell hardcopy of it, or only pdf/epub ?

>> I'd been reticent in the past to announce the book on the mailing list, but it's pretty comprehensive now and we have enough ecstatic readers learning Haskell with it that I thought I'd share what we've been up to.
>> We're writing this Haskell book (http://haskellbook.com/ [2]) because many have found learning Haskell to be difficult and it doesn't have to be. We have a strong focus on writing it to be a book for learning and teaching - it's not just a reference or review of topics. Particularly, we strive to make the book suitable for self-learners. We think Haskell is a really nice language and learning Haskell should be as nice as using it is.
>> The new release puts the book at 26 chapters and 1,156 pages. You can track our progress here: http://haskellbook.com/progress.html [3]
>> The latest release included parser combinators, composing types, and monad transformers.
>> My coauthor Julie Moronuki has never programmed before learning Haskell to work with me on this book. She has written about using the book to teach her 10 year old son as well - https://superginbaby.wordpress.com/2015/04/08/teaching-haskell-to-a-10-year-old-day-1/ [4]
>> Julie has also written about learning Haskell more generally - https://superginbaby.wordpress.com/2015/05/30/learning-haskell-the-hard-way/ [5]
>> If you've been reading the book, please speak up and share your thoughts. We have some reader feedback on the site at http://haskellbook.com/feedback.html [6]
>> We'll be looking for a press to do a print run of the book soon as it's about 80% done. If anyone has any pointers or recommendations on whom to work with, particularly university presses, please email me.
>> Cheers everyone,
>> Chris Allen
