Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Am cherry-picking my way through Queinnec's Lisp in Small Pieces, and your syntax-case exposition is exactly what I needed to introduce dynamic bindings. First, you can take a small piece of cereal like a Cheerio and put it on the roof of your mouth, just behind your teeth. Easy to compile (most implementations of Lisp are written almost or entirely in Lisp, and the “reference” implementations usually include a compiler – see Sussmann's Scheme book or 'LiSP in Small Pieces' for examples). €One of my New Year's goals is to re-read Lisp in Small Pieces and implement all 11 interpreters and 2 compilers. 23:32; Blogger ern said Awesome. Now, the programming concepts book that I really want would be the successor to Lisp in Small Pieces (ISBN 0-521-56247-3), but AFAICT, it hasn't been finished. Chapter 5 of Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs and chapter 7 of Lisp in Small Pieces both present byte-code interpreting virtual machines for Scheme that are implemented in Scheme. So one would expect that the probability of buying the "Blue Book" given a purchase of the "Lisp in Small Pieces" would be much higher than the probability of purchasing Harry Potter.

Otherwise I would be hard pressed to choose something like The Art of the Metaobject Protocol, The wizard book, or maybe Lisp In Small Pieces. But I definitely wouldn't say that its standard has been written with optimization in mind. I would add "Lisp In Small Pieces" by Christian Queinnec. See “Lisp in Small Pieces” or “Implementing Elliptic Curve Cryptography” for real literate programs as books. Scheme is probably easier to implement than CL, because it is much, much smaller.
