Good book if you have programmed before

by Gary on 5/2/2012

This book is great-if you have programming experience. It moves quickly and leaves out some definitions that definitely ought to be in a "beginner's" book. If you have never programmed before, you might want to try C before moving on to Lisp (and this book in particular), as Lisp is an odd language. If you have some programming experience, this may be a good book for you, as it is very well written. Read More

Product Overview

Lisp is a uniquely powerful programming language that, despite its academic reputation, is actually very practical. "Land of Lisp" brings the language into the real world, teaching readers Lisp by showing them how to write several complete Lisp-based games, including a text adventure, an evolution simulation, and a robot battle. While building these games, readers learn the core concepts of Lisp programming, such as recursion, input/output, object-oriented programming, and macros. And thanks to Lisp''s powerful syntax, the example code is short and easy to understand. The book is filled with the author''s brilliant Lisp cartoons, which are sure to appeal to many Lisp fans and, in the tradition of all No Starch Press titles, make learning more fun.
