If you prefer dead trees, a decent book on the functional style is "The
Functional Approach to Programming" by Cousineau and Mauny:

    http://pauillac.inria.fr/cousineau-mauny/main.html

As an added bonus, it uses Caml syntax -- but on the minus side, i really
do mean "Caml" syntax, and not "O'Caml", so there's a small translation
barrier you have to go through.  Nothing that's insurmountable with the
O'Caml manual handy, though.

cheers,
