Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs

Interactive Version

Wizard Book n. Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs, an excellent computer science text used in introductory courses at MIT. So called because of the wizard on the jacket. One of the bibles of the LISP/Scheme world.
Interactive SICP n. Interactive Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs. Online version of SICP with a built-in scheme interpreter to allow readers to edit and run the code embedded in SICP. (Work in progress)
