The Book’s Theme
The theme of this book is twofold:
- that Lisp is a natural language for programs written in the bottom-up style,
- that the bottom-up style is a natural way to write Lisp programs.
On Lisp will thus be of interest to two classes of readers.
- For people interested in writing extensible programs, this book will show
what you can do if you have the right language.
- For Lisp programmers, this book offers a practical explanation of how to use
Lisp to its best advantage.
