Let Over Lambda -- 50 Years of Lisp

This book is about pushing the boundaries of what we know about programming. If you have ever wondered what lisp or even programming itself is really about, this is the book you have been looking for.

From the Book Description:

Let Over Lambda is one of the most hardcore computer programming books out there. Starting with the fundamentals, it describes the most advanced features of the most advanced language: Common Lisp. The point of this book is to expose you to ideas you might otherwise never be exposed to.

If you are looking for a dry coding manual that re-hashes common-sense techniques in whatever langue du jour, this book is not for you. This book is about pushing the boundaries of what we know about programming. While this book teaches useful skills that can help solve your programming problems today and now, it has also been designed to be entertaining and inspiring. If you have ever wondered what lisp or even programming itself is really about, this is the book you have been looking for.
