Superb book that explains the intricacies of macros in Common Lisp.

The author shows how functional programming and macros combine powerfully in a "bottoms-up" programming methodology. The book is not overly long but shows the power of Lisp in a variety of contexts.

It is also chock-full of little utilities that would be helpful to any Lisp programmer.
