A programmer's book for the Scheme implementation of Lisp.
Ack!: Unfortunately, it's not possible for me to read this book. It's not geared towards people who are new to Lisp so it's impossible to comprehend in any way. I don't want to learn lisp, I want to learn the problem solving skills touted for this book. Oh well...
I gave it away, though to whom I cannot recall.

A thing made in Lisp.
I had previously been pointed towards Scheme as one of those links to precursor technology.. and I like the idea of delving into the deep dark past but that particular bit of effort didn't pan out / feel right.

This is a commentary on an excerpt, maintained here because this is how I first read it.
