[philly-lambda] Re: Actually read SICP?

> My question to this list is: how many of you have actually read SICP

I read it very carefully, over the period 1992-1995 or so.  It was
the first edition in those days.

When the second edition came out I read the new parts, but not as carefully.

That I couldn't say.

I'd say yes, and be prepared to give it deep and careful study.
