Practical Common Lisp

Practical Common LispLast Sunday, browsing the bookshops in town, “Practical Common Lisp” by Peter Siebel caught my eye. I remember reading it online about a year ago. It allowed me to rediscover Lisp, since, to my regret, I had to bid farewell to the programmable programming language when I left college. It might have been nostalgia but I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Thanks to Peter Siebel! I had no hesitation, I bought the hardcover straight away. I can only recommend it highly for anyone wanting to learn Lisp.

This post would not be complete without pointing you to Paul Graham’s “On Lisp”.
