Resources to learn Monad

Hey!
I am a very beginner with Haskell. I loved this language and want to learn more. I understood basic concepts like types, type class and can write some simple programs.

Currently, I am facing difficulty with understanding and using monad.
Can anyone provide me with some resources to learn advance (from basic preferably) concepts of monad?

This is my tutorial for IO specifically: https://github.com/soupi/haskell-study-plan/blob/master/README.org#what-is-io

It laters continues to talk about type classes and links to tutorials on them.

When I first learnt Haskell, I found the chapter on Monads from Learn You a Haskell to be quite nice. You may want to read the previous chapter (on functors and applicatives) as well.

(Note: Since I first recommended it, I have heard that some people find this particular book hard to follow. However, I would still encourage you to try it — you may still find it useful.)

@bradrn I already followed this. Not completely but yes I did try to follow a few starting lessons from this book. I was a bit hard (and time-consuming) to follow it so eventually I stopped. I’ll try to learn this lesson :smiley:
Thanks
