It is not possible in a book that is already too long for comfort to include a full introduction to the LISP programming language. Therefore the interested reader is referred to Artificial Intelligence (Winston, 1977), which contains a number of useful exercises but is unfortunately based on a different dialect of LISP; The New UCI Lisp Manual (Meehan, 1979), which is a good reference manual to the dialect used here; and Artificial Intelligence Programming (Charniak et al., 1980), which covers explicitly in greater detail many of the techniques referenced here.
