If you don't come from a math or philosophy background (and I don't) "monad" sounds like a made-up word. Of course, understanding OO's use of terms like "class" and "object" can be hard to grok at first too. But at least those terms have some grounding in real-world concepts that non-math geeks come across. Because I couldn't draw an analogy of monads to anything at first, it made grasping the concept of monads very hard for me.

Excellent rundown of "what's a Monad" for someone coming from a .Net background.
