I've started reading Real World Haskell and it is a great way to learn functional programming. Coming from XSLT (a rather functional language) I had a feeling of preparedness. Fortunately, Real World Haskell has revealed a huge gap in my experience with functional languages as well as presented me with an opportunity to make major strides towards growing as a programmer.

Before going on though, I'd like to point out that Real World Haskell (RWH) is not a book for beginning programmers. There is a constant comparison made to traditional languages such as Java or Python that almost require the reader to have programming experience. In addition to the programming experience, functional programming has a tendency to come across rather "mathy" compared to other languages. This most likely says more about yours truly than RWH, but for those programmers who manage to scrape by (like myself) without a strong background in math, it might take a little extra effort.
