Practical Common Lisp. The whole book, one PDF, free. : programming
By far the best book on the topic. On the other hand if you are already familiar with lisp and you want to see what common lisp can do in a practical way this is your book, though sometimes it gets a bit boring in a “reference way”, just throwing facts at kisp.

You do know about the locate tools I hope? Generally speaking, I prefer scheme’s syntax than common lisp’s.

Practical Common LISP
Doing programming on the daily basis I’m always fascinated how different the expressiveness commonn the different languages is and lisp family can be treated as the most expressive one and one of the reasons is that it’s one of few families where software is created not only by writing modules or packages but also by shaping language syntax to fit lip to task at hand.
This is the first book that introduces Lisp as a language for the real world.
I’m not touching any of their crap ever again. There are no discussion topics on dommon book yet. While it’s unlikely that I’ll get rich off my royalties, we don’t have to sell all that many copies for Apress pratical turn a profit and show the naysayers that Lisp has legs yet.
Apr 28, Gaelan D’costa rated it really liked it Recommends it for: You don’t come away feeling like you need a more advanced book to teach you how to really be productive the way pretty much every Smalltalk book makes you feel for example. Though, I think euccastro has a good point. Nevertheless, I think it’s worth digging into the language and see on what spress be done with it nawadays and this book is an excellent guide to do it.

I personally found paress book a disappointment I started this book several times, but always abandoned it after a couple of chapters. The bit of disappointment for me was when I got the understanding the scale of legacy Common Lisp has in it’s standrad labrary as well as in the development process, package management etc.
This is a well-written description of all the language has to offer. The writing style is engaging enough and Seibel makes sure to always include background information and links for further reading, which I very much apprecia I started this book several times, but always abandoned it after a couple of chapters.
