I’ve found Grokking Simplicity [0] to be a great, pragmatic introduction to solving real-world problems with “functional thinking”.

All the code is JavaScript and it tries to walk you through how you might solve common, everyday business problems with a more functional approach. All without getting bogged down with terms like “monad” or “functor”.

This book (along with Domain Driven Design made Functional, mentioned elsewhere) are both great resources for getting introduced to “useful” functional programming.

Thanks a lot for the suggestions and comments in this and other sibling comments, I now have for sure a bit of reading and learning to do!
