Informative and fun, it gives users everything they need to start writing programs in Lisp both efficiently and effectively, and highlights such innovative Lisp features as automatic memory management, manifest typing, closures, and more.

It also shows how to utilize all this for some non-trivial cases to make the best use of the language possible. I’m not sure yet if this is a good or bad thing. Beginners will find lispp its careful explanations and interesting examples make Lisp programming easy to learn.
