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
