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 book is an unofficial Lisp programmers' bible. All functions defined in Common Lisp and every specification can be found here. The second edition contains six completely new chapters on CLOS, loops, conditions, series, generators and more.

This book is an introduction to Common Lisp. The author considers Common Lisp to be twice as good as Java for some applications. Common Lisp compilers are freely available, stable, and compiled Common Lisp code is very fast.

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.
by Stuart Charles Shapiro - W.H. Freeman & Company
The book is a self-paced study guide to Common Lisp programming language. It presents Lisp in a general setting, rather than in the context of a special field in which it is used. The text assumes experience with some imperative programming languages.
