Racket is a descendant of Lisp, a programming language renowned for its elegance, power, and challenging learning curve. But while Racket retains the functional goodness of Lisp, it was designed with beginning programmers in mind. Realm of Racket is your introduction to the Racket language.

This book did not meet my expectations. It is a good book if you're new to programming and want to learn Racket, but nothing more. Sadly, that holds true for all Scheme books out there. I was hoping for an in-depth (or at least, deeper) book on Racket, since the official documentation is a bit tricky to get into. Unfortunately, it doesn't cover much. You get to learn some basic constructs, but it goes nowhere near macros or complex Racket features.

First book I have encountered that taught me Functional Programming without feeling like I needed to learn Lambda Calculus before going back to chapter 2. Was looking for a book to help me change the way i program and this one delivered. I had attempted Haskell at least three times and feel flat each time.
