An introduction to Common Lisp for people curious about Lisp and a tutorial for anybody who wants to get down to real coding right away. Learn Lisp from this book and it will make you a better programmer in any language.
by David S. Touretzky - Benjamin-Cummings Pub Co
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.
by David Johnson-Davies
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.
by Richard P. Gabriel - The MIT Press
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.
