Loving Lisp

Mark Watson is writing a free introductory book on Common Lisp called Loving Lisp, or the Savvy Programmer's Secret Weapon (there's a PDF file in the downloadable zip file).

He says "My goal is to write something that an experienced programmer can work through in a couple of evenings to see if she likes Common Lisp."

It's only about 1/3 complete, but from skimming over it it looks like it could become a helpful resource for people new to lisp. And he's looking for feedback so if you have any comments, email him.

I remember Watson's book Common Lisp Modules fondly as the only lisp book available at the time (1994) that (i) had graphics and (ii) used a Mac.
