Just trying to be a reporter

After the 0.1.2 release of Learning Functional Programming in Scala, it occurs to me that I need to be more explicit about my goals for the book. Some people seem to think that I’m trying to “sell” functional programming. That’s not the case at all. I’m just trying to be a reporter and explain what I’ve learned about FP after reading dozens (hundreds?!) of articles and many books on FP, learning Haskell, trying to apply these techniques to my own code, etc. I’ll explain this further in the next release of the book.
