The pinnacle of the act of teaching is to be simultaneously clear, simple, interesting, and complete. There’s a problem loading this menu right now. I’m still struggling with lisp, but this book was simple, to the point, and clear. It uses a single data structure, the linked list, and a minimum of programming primitives, all with well-known mathematical properties.

The format is a programmed text with questions on the left side and answers on the right. Get fast, free shipping with Amazon Prime. And most importantly, functions are lambdas. I have prepared a file containing primitive functions conscdretc. There are hard problems along the way, littl their solution brings mastery of recursive, functional, and meta-linguistic abstractions, developing skills in the underlying creative programming in Lisp.

I cannot endorse this book highly enough.

He used the names of foods as the symbols that are manipulated by your functions, and little jokes were scattered around to pull you back when things get so deep that your head is going to pop off.

Explore the Home Gift Guide. It is a dynamic language. The greatest strength of LISP is its firm base in the essentials of the mathematics of computability, including Goedel’s recursive functions and Church’s Lambda calculus. Pass the pizza, please, I have a little more to write Despite its flaws, the book has a very loyal following and that is because it works.


There are very few books that deeply change the way that you think. The authors’ goal is to show that recursive thinking is first of all fun, that it is powerful, and that the programming language Lisp allows one to express ideas recursively and naturally. I added the define function, which allows you to enter all of the Scheme functions and run them.
