Daniel Holden: Build Your Own Lisp

book cover On Reddit I stumbled on Build Your Own Lisp by Daniel Holden and decided to read it. And it’s one of the most interesting technical book I’m read. Reading this book I refreshed my knowledge of C, got few ideas for my own projects and even almost built my own Lisp.

Although in this book explains building process of not actual Lisp, it doesn’t have quotation '(f x), it uses Q-Expressions {f x}. And also it doesn’t have macros. But the book suggested readers to write all of that in the last chapter.
