"If you're looking for your first F# book, get this one. After just a few chapters, you'll see just how beautiful and simple F# is. The programs you'll write will be shorter and easier to understand than programs you write in other languages. Your code will have all the safety of .NET's static type system, but the brevity of dynamically typed languages such as Python."
