I’d like to read this book on Kindle Don’t have a Kindle? It will maintain the interest of anyone who comes to learn.

Amazon Drive Cloud storage from Amazon. JavaScript has much in common with Scheme. It touches on only a very small part of the language: It is weak in practical concerns like documentation, defensive programming, and computational efficiency. And most importantly, functions are lambdas.

The format is a programmed text with questions on the left side and answers on the right. The reader is left ready to write Lisp code, no matter what background precedes it.

So get a copy of The Little Schemer and start recursing. It has a flexible datatype arrays that can easily simulate s-expressions. It is a dynamic language. English Choose a language for shopping.

The latest, The Little Schemer Fourth Editionupdated by Friedman and Matthias Felleisennow conforms more closely to a real programming language, Schemeand has new chapters which delve much deeper into recursive llittle theory and language processors.


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. Perhaps even more strange and wonderful, nowhere in lispre book lispet recursive functions is the Factorial Function ever mentioned.

There are hard problems along the way, but their solution brings mastery of recursive, functional, and meta-linguistic abstractions, developing skills in the underlying creative programming in Lisp.
