The issue with Practical Common Lisp is that it takes too long to get anywhere and the practical chapters themselves are just as much a slog. For example, the combine in page of the text book cannot be defined by the message passing model.

It is not clear if Graham only hates object oriented programming – there is quite some evidence for that elsewhere – or actually does not understand it. In addition, original deffinition causes a stack overflow.

I’m impressed at Graham’s ability to summarize. LISP is the best language in the world.

No eBook available Amazon. Read, highlight, and take notes, across web, tablet, and phone. Taken together the books are a treasure trove to me. In the case of clisp, it dose not matter.

Even after having read Practical Common Lisp I wasn’t really clear how to pull together all the libraries I needed to get anything real done e. It’s more than just an introductory book– ;aul of its extensive reference section, it may be, for most readers, a useful alternative to Steele. When they belong to different packages.

User Review – Flag as inappropriate The first part, regarding general data structures of Lisp, is quite OK but especially for programmers who want to, or must, use object oriented approaches this book is seriously misleading. It simultaneously explains some of the pzul ideas behind object-oriented programming and takes the reader through several versions of an object-oriented system, each more sophisticated than the previous.

Tommy Mcguire rated it really liked it May 24, In sentences written by Henly, the maximum length of each sentence gets longer as total length of sentences increases. Much more concise but obviously less in-depth than Common Lisp, the Lips, it’s quite useful for keep a reference on hand. Teaching users new and more powerful ways of thinking about programs, this two-in-one text contains a tutorial—full of examples—that explains all the essential concepts of Lisp programming, plus an up-to-date summary of ANSI Common Lisp, listing every operator in the language.

Pqul Successful Lisp might be a better choice to learn Lisp from, I keep a copy of this on hand for its qnsi Appendix D, the language r This is the standard tome of Lisp learning, and it is indeed a comon book.
