Common Lisp: An Interactive Approach
by Stuart Charles Shapiro
Publisher: W.H. Freeman & Company 1999
Number of pages: 358
The purpose of this book is to teach the Common Lisp programming language. Because of the varied interests in Lisp, this book has tried to present it in a general and neutral setting, rather than specifically in the context of any of the special fields in which it is used. Since this book assumes that students will have had experience with some imperative programming language, it teaches pure Lisp before the imperative constructs.

The chapters of this book expose the reader to the LISP formalism and give him an opportunity to acquire the necessary skills for processing symbolic data. Learning these skills is analogous to learning the rules of arithmetic ...

The LISP language is designed primarily for symbolic data processing used for symbolic calculations in differential and integral calculus, electrical circuit theory, mathematical logic, etc. The manual describes LISP, a formal mathematical language.

LISP is a remarkable and powerful language, because not only does it govern the operation of a computer, but also it is a mathematical language of great power for processing processes in mathematics, logic, and symbol manipulation in general.
