Becoming Functional (O'Reilly)
Written by Editor   
Wednesday, 27 August 2014

If you have an imperative (and probably object-oriented) programming background, this hands-on book will guide you through the alien world of functional programming. Joshua Backfield begins by showing you how to apply the most useful implementation concepts before taking you further into functional-style concepts and practices. Use what you are learning to refactor imperative-style legacy code as you proceed.
