Interesting. I haven't messed with ML, save flipping through my copy
of "The Little MLer". :)

I own, have read, and absolutely love "The Little Schemer"! I read
that, then "The Scheme Programming Language", then some of SICP before
trying to use Scheme for real.

Of course, Clojure ended up becoming my Lisp of choice, as the JVM
environment is what we use at work.

Thanks so much for all the detailed information. It was just what I
was hoping for when posting this question!
