Little Schemer

The Little Schemer arrived yesterday, and I'm now in the second chapter. It starts out very easy, which is what I expected, but my hope is that reviewing these basic concepts will cause them to become more solid in my mind. The novel question and answer approach makes going over the old material more interesting. Actually, although such an approach is novel for a computer science textbook, it is actually a return to the catechism technique that has been used in the Christian Church for two millennia.
