Common LISP: A Gentle Introduction to Symbolic Computation
by David S. Touretzky
Publisher: Benjamin-Cummings Pub Co 1990
Number of pages: 587
This book is about learning to program in Lisp. Although widely known as the principal language of artificial intelligence research—one of the most advanced areas of computer science—Lisp is an excellent language for beginners. It is increasingly the language of choice in introductory programming courses due to its friendly, interactive environment, rich data structures, and powerful software tools that even a novice can master in short order.
