**Description**:

This book is about learning to program in Lisp. Although widely known as the principal language of artificial intelligence researchâ€”one of the most advanced areas of computer scienceâ€”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.
