The easiest, simplest way to learn functional programming?

I hope that my new book, Learn Functional Programming Without Fear, is the easiest and simplest way to learn functional programming (FP). I didn’t initially intend for it to be an FP book, but as I was writing about pure functions, immutable (algebraic) variables, immutable data structures, and functional error-handling, I realized that these were the first four essential stepping stones to help you transition from OOP to FP, and to Scala/FP libraries like ZIO and Cats Effect.

Initially I was planning to write a book titled something like “Thinking with Types” or “Solving Problems with Pure Functions,” but once I realized where it was going, I decided to create a new functional programming book that’s much shorted than my own, Functional Programming, Simplified book.
