16.1 On Lisp Companion Volume

Lisp has a unique quality: macros. Lisp programmers can, and often do, write programs to write their programs for them. Lisp is the only major language in which this is a routinely used technique, because Lisp is the only major language to provide the abstractions that make it convenient. I would like to invite readers who are interested in learning more about macros and other advanced techniques to read the companion volume, On Lisp.
