Common Lisp: An Interactive Approach
by Stuart Charles Shapiro
Publisher: W.H. Freeman & Company 1999
Number of pages: 358
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.

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.

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.
