"drawings by Duane Bibby" foreword by Gerald J. Sussman "I learned more about LISP from this book than I have from any of the other LISP books I've read over the years. . . . While other books will tell you the mechanics of LISP, they can leave you largely uninformed on the style of problem-solving for which LISP is optimized. The Little LISPer teaches you how to think in the LISP language. . . an inexpensive, enjoyable introduction." -- Gregg Williams, Byte The notion that "thinking about computing is one of the most exciting things the human mind can do" sets both "The Little Schemer" (formerly known as "The Little LISPer" ) and its new companion volume, "The Seasoned Schemer," apart from other books on LISP. The authors' enthusiasm for their subject is compelling as they present abstract concepts in a humorous and easy-to-grasp fashion. Together, these books will open new doors of thought to anyone who wants to find out what computing is really about. "The Little Schemer" introduces computing as an extension of arithmetic and algebra -- things that everyone studies in grade school and high school. It introduces programs as recursive functions and briefly discusses the limits of what computers can do. The authors use the programming language Scheme, and interesting foods to illustrate these abstract ideas. "The Seasoned Schemer" informs the reader about additional dimensions of computing: functions as values, change of state, and exceptional cases. "The Little LISPer" has been a popular introduction to LISP for many years. It had appeared in French and Japanese. "The Little Schemer" and "The SeasonedSchemer" are worthy successors and will prove equally popular as textbooks for Scheme courses as well as companion texts for any complete introductory course in Computer Science.

The Economist Economics 4th edition

Author: Richard Davies
Publisher: Profile Books
ISBN: 9781782830436
Release Date: 2015-09-17
Genre: Business & Economics

The world of economics is changing. Years of turmoil in the global economy mean that nothing will ever be quite the same again. This is the starting point and theme of this radically revised Economist books classic. Richard Davies takes us on a journey through the paper's own analysis of the state of the world's economies, how we reached this point and what to expect in the next decade. He explores: * what's gone wrong since 2008, why it's happened and how we can stop it happening again * the shifting focus of economics from banking to labour economics * a new breed of firm with economics at their operational core * the future hopes and challenges for the world economy Along the way, we encounter the global economy laid bare, from banks, panics and crashes to innovative new policies to improve how markets function; from discussions around jobs, pay and inequality to the promise of innovation and productivity; and from the implications of emerging markets and the globalisation of trade through to the sharing economy and the economics of Google and eBay. The result is a fascinating review of the global economy and the changing role of economics in the new world order.
