This is a great starter for LISP! The writing is light and entertaining and the information solid. If you are looking to learn LISP, you can't really go wrong here.
I especially enjoyed the artwork!

This book was a rather good introduction to Common Lisp for newcomers. The games, mostly text-based or web+svg-based, are interesting and very well designed. Explanations are good, style is alright (well, I couldn't expect something to formal, could I?). I'm glad to have purchased it. However, it is not a very technical book. Those of you who want to go deeper should lean towards Practical Common Lisp.
