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.

One of the most hardcore computer programming books out there. Starting with the fundamentals, it describes the most advanced features of the most advanced language: Common Lisp. This book is about macros, that is programs that write programs.
newLISP combines the power of classic LISP with the facilities of a modern scripting language, such as regular expressions, network functions, multitasking, etc. This book is a straightforward and simple description of the basics of the language.

This is a gentle introduction to Common Lisp for students taking their first programming course. No prior mathematical background beyond arithmetic is assumed. There are lots of examples, the author avoided technical jargon.

The book describes the Lisp implementation techniques in use and serves as a handbook to the implementation of all Lisp expressions. It provides performance information using the benchmarking tools to measure the various Lisp systems.
