Mind if I "me too" a bit? I had just read the SICP, and I too found
that the Gentle Introduction served well as an introduction to the
Haskell syntax. I think it'd be fine if the title were a bit less
ambitious - it isn't really aimed at the novice, I think.
It's been a while since I read it tho'
If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
