**Description**:

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.
