Anatomy of lisp


요즘 읽고 있는 anatomy of lisp의 아마존 가격은 꽤 올라서 얼마전에는  20만원이 넘었었다. 240불까지 간적이 있다. 다시 100불대로 내려왔다. 예전에도 싼 책은 아니었지만 많이 오른 셈이다. 

mit와 스탠포드의 lisp을 구현한 알렌은 서스만과 스틸 그리고 해커들에게 좋은 조언을 많이 해준 사람이었다. 
그린블러트 역시 알렌의 조언을 많이 받았다고 알려져 있다. 

조잡한 인쇄 (초창기 LaTex) 의 폰트만 아니라면 정말 읽기 쉬울 것 같다. 그리고 조금 더 쉬운 문제를 사용했더라면 .. 하지만 알렌은 옛날 사람이다. 

요즘의 아마존 리뷰가 궁금해서 찾아 보았다.

5.0 out of 5 stars The most intelligent book ever written on LISPFebruary 14, 2008
By  Mayer Goldberg (Beer Sheva, Negev Israel) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This book is not up to date, this book is out-of-print, but if you're a lisp or scheme hacker you owe it to yourself to get a copy of this book any [legal] way you can. This is by far the most intelligent book ever written on LISP. 

The book starts with the basics of symbolic computing, and then moves on: a detailed analysis of syntax (without taking any shortcuts on sexprs), interpretation, [a hasty introduction to] the lambda calculus, denotational semantics (!), compilation and code generation, the top-level and the run-time environment, including garbage collection. Special emphasis is placed on imperative LISP. All this described in 446 pages of a single book. This book packs about 5-6 different university courses in a single volume! The level of the discussion is high, there are plenty of examples of real code, but thankfully the author avoids many of the pitfalls of later books on Scheme and functional programming: (1) He doesn't employ the "running example" approach to writing computer books: Each example is small, very focused, and the discussion remains academic. (2) Formalisms are explained in quasi-mathematical lambda-notation, rather than by dumping source code on the poor reader. 

This is a very rich source. The book discusses issues that other authors typically punt: labels and goto, side effects on constants (this is the ONLY book that mentions a problem known as The Anomaly of Quote), etc. 

This is an old book, and it does not mention hygienic macro systems, continuations, object orientation, and other more recent topics. Nevertheless, while there are some awesome books written on LISP and Scheme, the Anatomy of LISP is by a far stretch the best written and most intelligently written.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Reading about Functional ProgrammingAugust 24, 2003
By  Juancarlo Anez "juanco" (Caracas, Venezuela) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This is a beautiful book about the essense of LISP, functional programming, and interpreters.

The author takes the reader through a journey of discovery of the concepts behind functional languages, working his way from atoms, to S-expressions, to lists, to lambda calculus and functions, and then to environments, early and lazy evaluation, and, finally, into the construction of a LISP interpreter using LISP itself.

This book is essential reading for anyone interested in the fundamental concepts behind computing and programming.
