I doubt I would agree to shell out the $80 it costs had I not had the RAC money in PayPal already. Today I made the first order – “Lisp in Small Pieces” – it's just the kind of book to buy as a special present to myself. Posted by aspo at 10:17 PM on April 1, 2009. One of my New Year's goals is to re-read Lisp in Small Pieces and implement all 11 interpreters and 2 compilers. In other words, it is not really about truly building models. What features from R5RS would have to be removed if one wanted a referentially transparent scheme? Lisp in Small Pieces is like that; it's more about a cute way to teach things that bends the mind than having fun in exploring design trade-offs. And back to the subject at hand, while it's not available for free on the web, if you love these kinds of CS books, Lisp In Small Pieces needs a place on your CS bookshelf. In Lisp In Small Pieces, Christian states that assignment, side-effects, and continuations break referential transparency. I find The Little Schemer and The Seasoned Schemer to be very good complements to SICP and I recommend them wholeheartedly for everyone.
