Has anyone watched the Functional Thinking videos by Neal Ford from O'Reilly? I'm thinking of splashing out on them...$49 though

My colleague has those videos and considers them "decent" although he hasn't gone thru them all yet. He also has Neal Ford's "Clojure Inside Out" with Stu Halloway http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0636920030409.do and he likes those a lot better (he finds Stu a better presenter than Neal). I haven't seen either so I have no opinion.

Might be worth trawling through tech video sites like http://www.infoq.com first as there's a lot of good FP stuff available for free, including some from Neal Ford. Look out for Rich Hickey's talks as well, especially Simple made easy.

No more Blub for me, thank you, Vicar.
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
