True, but such reading (and more importantly, experimenting with code) 
can provide an introduction to the core workings of 
monads-as-programming-construct that's directly accessible to someone 
already familiar with Scheme.

Of course, first educating oneself in category theory may be a superior 
approach, for someone willing to make that investment.
