Here it is: my latest book! About minimal LISP, metacircular interpretation,
self-compilation, and hacking in the age of mainframe computers. Contains
lots of implementations, including a simple LISP->C compiler that emits a
stand-alone C file.

All code from the book is in the public domain!

Enjoy!

Well it is not your latest book, it's an advertisement for your latest book.

Shocking that you can't make a distinction between an advertisement and
the real thing.

I looked at the page. I don't understand lisp that well, so I looked
at the general quality from a CS stand. No comment, no introductory
passages to any source. Somewhere between 4 and 5,
meaning unsufficient to very unsufficient.
(or between D and E on an USA scale.)

This is the first day of the end of your life.
It may not kill you, but it does make your weaker.
If you can't beat them, too bad.

An extensive introduction and comments can be found in the book
(even in the sample chapter). And, yes, it is an advertisement,
and in other places on the internet it has been very well received.

I can. And though my native language is not English could also perfectly
well parse the original post. Sorry for you that you were unable to do so.
