The first part of this book introduces the concept of functional programming, describes a language that fulfills all the requirements, and shows how to solve simple problems in it. The second part of the book shows how to apply the techniques of the first part to some problems of varying complexity. The third part, finally, shows how to implement the abstraction layer that is necessary for solving problems in an abstract way on a concrete computer.
