Orna thinks this comment is sig worthy, but I don’t know. lj worthy, definitely.

– how do you know a Lisp book is any good? – it has bits of assembler in it.

It has both M68K and a Lisp Machine assembler code, in chapter 10, Low Level Efficiency issues. Highly recommended.


  1. I purchased David S. Touretzky’s “Common LISP: A gentle introduction to symbolic computation” a while ago and must admit that it is a bit low-key. Nothing like simplistic explainations to dull an interesting subject.

    • eeek, that doesn’t sound too good. I guess that’s one book I won’t be buying.
      I’m really happy with the Norvig book so far. As a matter of fact, I should go read some more now 🙂
