Book Recommendation for Functional Programming

Hi. I remember that when I started learning Javascript (still is) I decided to go for the real basics and avoid learning it with an external lib, eg jQuery, etc. Some people may agree or not, but that’s my mindset when I begin learning something.

Well, now I’m facing a similar situation when learning FP with JS, most of the books rely on external libs. So, would someone indicate a very basic book that doesn’t go that route?

Thanks in advance.

Hi @kodertian, 2 books I would recommend are Functional-Light JavaScript by Kyle Simpson and Professor Frisby’s Mostly Adequate Guide To Functional Programming – both are very accessible and the latter especially fun to read (if you can appreciate his somewhat quirky style of writing). ^^

Javascript can be confusing with all those external libraries.

I recommend these resources to sharpen the concepts of vanilla JS that is pure javascript

  1. Eloquent JavaScript(Book)
    2)TutsPlus(Website)
    3)Udemy(Website)
    4)Youtube tutorials
    5)FreeCodecamp(Website)
    6)Javscript 30(Best course on JS by Wes bos)

Best of luck
