I did run a self study group in Berlin and I highly recommend the 1st 19
chapters of the "Haskell programming from first principles" to start from
the ground. After that it's more beneficial to continue with a more
project-based approach to connect the dots with hands-on code. For
the second part, although I just read the sample part of "The Simple
Haskell Handbook", it seems fairly practical.
