@kensanata @sivy I didn't read SICP until about 8 years into being a programmer. It's one of my favorite books (of any genre) ever

I like the print copy and this online copy sarabander.github.io/sicp/html

I also really like these old 1980s lectures a lot (be sure to start from 1a) archive.org/details/SICP_4_ipo

I found the book was very difficult to read without the lectures, so what I would do was skim a chapter, watch the lecture, then re-read the chapter and try the exercises. It's a journey... enjoy!

@cwebber @kensanata @sivy I got introduced to it during the first semester at uni in the worst possible way as the professor stopped using it after the first couple of chapters before the interesting bits started. Reread it much later and found my love for #scheme.
