Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs

The book Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs (AKA the Wizard Book) by Abelson and Sussman is an introduction to programming, using Scheme. It starts at the basics, but rapidly progresses to topics so advanced that many languages other than Scheme would not have been able to keep up. Each step is clearly and concisely explained, making the book easy to follow.
