Book Description

Sketchy LISP is a step-by-step introduction to functional programming in Scheme. By means of numerous examples of varying complexity, it takes the reader on an entertaining and informative tour through the language.

About the Authors
  • Nils M. Holm is attracted by anything that is beautiful: math, nature, little insects, and the bright sun rays that fill the sky in the summer days, but most of all by the fragile reflection of empathy and sensitivity in the eyes of beings that are similar to himself.
