Given the amount of material posted at <a href="http://haskell.org">haskell.org</a> and elsewhere<br>explaining IO, monads and functors, has anyone considered publishing<br>a comprehensive book explaining those subjects? (I am trying to
<br>read all the material online, but books are easier to read and don't<br>require sitting in front of a computer to do so. Plus I can write in<br>books :-). )</blockquote><div><br>Well, how much in depth are you interested in getting? I started reading Categories for the Working Mathematician a couple of months ago, and while it sometimes takes a bit of work it's a very good introduction. The only caution I have is that if you don't have that strong of a math background, or hadn't done it in a few years (like myself), you may have to lookup a lot of definitions in order to understand his examples. Wikipedia usually provides enough of a detailed description that you can get the point.
