A highly accessible introduction to LISP, this is for inexperienced programmers and programmers new to LISP. A LISP "toolkit" in each chapter explains how to use Common LISP programming and debugging tools such as DESCRIBE, INSPECT, TRACE and STEP.

Excellent book, very easy to understand


I did not know anything about Lisp and this book is teaching me the basics of the language very clearly. You could not ask for a better beginners book. five stars plus...

bring it back!


My copy is worn out, and I sure could use a NEW one...! When I buy a book, I seldom know whether it will become a staple of my library or not. This has, over the years, become part of the most central core. I have worked in LISP off and on for years, and this book unfailingly gets me back on in a hurry. Not only is it the clearest tutorial on LISP I know (it's even a literate, pleasant read!), it has the only discussion of recursion I know that's clear and fun. | 5 out of 5 Stars!

One of the most accessible Lisp introductions available

I have been involved for three decades now with Lisp and I consider this to be a tremendous introduction to the Language. The author is meticulous in detail and writes with a sharp, witty style. The treatment of Lisp evaluation is classic in clarity and brevity. The author gives good examples throughout the text. His fancy trace utility in the books appendix is useable and an excellent example of Lisp diagnostics.
