I thought you might be interested in this announcement as channel9 has its own F# tag and when it get mentioned it seems to get very positive feedback:
I’m very pleased to announce that Foundations of F# will finish its first printing run on Friday 25th May, two days after my birthday . It should reach any pre-order customers between 5 to 10 days later, meaning if ordered it on Amazon or Borders (or any other online store), it should be with you before the end of May. A few weeks after that it should start appearing in books stores, at least bookstores that have very big tech departments.
I wrote this book because I believe functional programming (FP) is the future of .NET programming. You have already seen the influence of functional programming on the .NET Framework; everybody’s favorite .NET 2.0 feature, generics, is an idea lifted directly from FP, and F# creator Don Syme was the drivig force behind the design and implementation of generics. To understand the full power of the current and future versions of the .NET Framework, every professional .NET programmer needs to learn about FP, and there’s no better way to do that than by learning F#—and no easier way to learn F# than by reading Foundations of F#.
I have to say I feel very proud to have got this far. There are over 230 code examples coving a large range of topics, so I think most programmers will find something to interest them.
