This third edition is a revised and expanded version of Winston and Horn's best-selling introduction to the Lisp programming language and to Lisp-based applications, many of which are possible as a result of advances in Artificial Intelligence technology. The Knowledge You Need The new edition retains the broad coverage of previous editions that has made this book popular both with beginners and with more advanced readers -- coverage ranging from the basics of the language to detailed examples showing Lisp in practice. Based on the CommonLisp standard, this book also introduces CommonLisp's object system, CLOS, and the productivity-promoting techniques enabled by object-oriented programming. Application examples drawn from expert systems, natural language interfaces, and symbolic mathematics are featured, and new applications dealing with probability bounds, project simulation, and visual object recognition are introduced. Special Features of this Edition *Based on extensive teaching experience *Explains key problem solving paradigms, such as search, forward chaining, and problem reduction *Discusses constraint propagation, backward chaining, and key ideas in Prolog *Emphasizes procedure and data abstraction, and other points of programming style and practice *Covers cliches, mapping, streams, delayed evaluation, and techniques for better and faster procedure definition 0201083191B04062001

This is a very nice introduction to Common Lisp. It is not advanced at all, and I feel like several things are missing from the book. For example, the chapter that introduces macros does not teach you how to deal with variable capture and other macro-related issues; The condition system is not explained at all; and all chapters from the first part of the book seem to be a bit superficial.

Anyway, it's a fairly nice book, particularly for people who are totally new to Lisp.

The second part of the book is something like an introduction to AI in Lisp (but "AI as it was in the 80's" -- not that it's bad, but lots of things happened in AI since then).
This is a good book to use if this is your first introduction to programming in LISP. Although some of the examples are a bit elementary, it is a good introduction to the language. The most frustrating thing is trying to use the book as a reference. The index is poor and due to the book's organization it makes looking up things a nightmare. If you're going to buy this book, buy a good reference book to go with it.
The private party I bought this from did an excellent job delivering it to me. I got it early, and the book was in better shape than I expected. the book itself is a good intro to Lisp. I bought it because I used the first edition of this book (before Common Lisp!) in college long ago. This edition covers Common Lisp and does a decent job. I found explanations about features that I didn't see in other texts, but some of the areas are kind of light. For example, the coverage of macros is light. You'll need another book for that. But overall the book is interesting and has good exercises, and has historical insight you may not find in another book. I only paid about $3.50 for my used copy, but I am very happy I did.
I bought this book interested in AI applications; I already knew LISP when I read it, and find it one of the best books for introduction to LISP. The text and samples themselves teach you how learning is done.
Modern scripting languages ( notably Python) are very list oriented.
LISP is the origin ( and basis of AI ) of all that. I an an "emacs" editor user
and this was my motivation for getting this.
The book is a bit beat-up but usable.
Very nice
Received the wrong book.
