A great book to start you off with Scheme, and functional programming. The approach is slightly different from most other Scheme introductory texts, and that makes this book an ideal sequel for all those students that were exposed to Logo as their first programming language. (By this I don't mean those that used turtle to draw nice shapes on the screen, but rather those that have read author's Logo books.) Brian Harvey starts off by introducing Logo procedures into Scheme (word, sentence, first, butfirst...), but don't let this mislead you into thinking that the book is trivial. Book slowly builds up to a spreadsheet and database projects. Full of interesting examples, and very witty. Five chapters on recursion are a gem.
