Basic Lisp Techniques
by David J. Cooper, Jr.
Publisher: Franz Inc. 2003
Number of pages: 100
The purpose of this book is to showcase the features that make Common Lisp so much better than Perl, Python, Java, C++, C#, and to give you a "quick-start" guide for using Common Lisp as a development environment. If you are an experienced programmer in languages other than Lisp, this guide gives you all the tools you need to begin writing Lisp applications. If you've had some exposure to Lisp in the past, this guide will help refresh those memories and shed some new light on CL for you.

The tutorials are aimed at someone with no previous experience of programming, and they are designed to take the reader to the stage where they can start writing their own programs to solve practical, interesting applications.
