This book is intended for anyone who wants to become a better Lisp programmer. The first few chapters contain a fair amount of review. The ability to bend Lisp to one’s will is a large part of what distinguishes a Lisp expert from a novice. As well as writing their programs down toward the language, experienced Lisp programmers build the language up toward their programs. This book teaches how to program in the bottom-up style for which Lisp is inherently well-suited.
