I think the concurrency half is most important. Any non trivial  Haskell
program should leverage concurrency, and Haskell's concurrency is amazing.


Correct, it's not the only thing a person should know to write Haskell, but it
is a required part of the curriculum. It also covers a lot of ground in
demonstrating why Haskell is great.

Both book title and synopsis seem to indicate that it is focused on  
parallel programming, which is important but certainly not the only  
thing you'd want to do in the real world. Also, not all real-world tasks  
involve parallelism, so the claim that parallelism is required reading  
requires substantiation.
