This tutorial is written with the professional programmer in mind. Using a hands on approach it introduces the ANSI Common Lisp standard. Practical examples of working code provide an in depth view of Common Lisp programming paradigms. David B. Lamkins explains why this programming language is by far the most powerful industrial strength tool available for advanced software development.

From the Author
A few of the more enthusiastic readers even compared "Successful Lisp" to a couple of my favorite Lisp texts. While I'll admit to having my spirits buoyed by such unabashed enthusiam, I'll also be the first to point out that "Successful Lisp" attempts to cover the subject in a somewhat different manner, and at different levels of detail, than the other available texts. By all means, enjoy this book. But when you need more information than I've been able to fit in this limited space, please turn to some of the other fine books listed in the Bibliography.
About the Author
David Lamkins was born in Watervliet, New York, and grew up in New York and Massachusetts. He started taking things apart as soon as he could hold a screwdriver, but it wasn't until he reached the age of twelve that he started putting things back together.
David has been a musician and programmer for over 20 years. A graduate of the first undergraduate Computer Science degree program at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, he has worked on everything from video games and high-volume rule-based systems to guitar synthesizers and tube amplifiers.
David lives in Oregon with his beloved, devoted, slightly spoiled but very patient wife, as well as what some may describe as "an excessive collection" of guitars, amplifiers, computers and cats. He also plays in two bands and works as a senior software engineer to fund his musical habits.
