Product description


I learned more about LISP from this book than I have from any of the other LISP books I've read over the years...While other books will tell you the mechanics of LISP, they can leave you largely uninformed on the style of problem-solving for which LISP is optimized. The Little LISPer teaches you how to think in the LISP language...an inexpensive, enjoyable introduction.

--Gregg Williams, Byte


This text is a companion volume to "The Seasoned Schemer" and includes thoughts for anyone who wants to know what computing is about and to learn the physics of cyberspace. The information is presented in a humorous and easy-to-grasp fashion.
