I read the first 7 chapters.  I found it easier going, as I remember, than
Graham's book.  I liked the author's habit of drawing parallels to other
languages, including Python.  As a result, I improved my understanding of
certain points about programing.  Thanks for the reference.

I also remain convinced that, in some ways important to *me*, Lisp is
clutzier than Python, and that I have insufficient reason to pursue it in
practice at this time.  To each their preference.
