    "This guide is a helpful way to learn the Scheme programming language. It is designed for individuals who desire a more in depth knowledge of computer programming. The guide itself, however, is written at a novice programming level. The guide contains 17 different numerical sections and deals with a variety of language programming techniques. "

    "I recommend the little Scheme if you are just starting out with programming and haven't mastered another language already. It does skim over advanced topics but it really focuses on starting from scratch. I was able to finish the book in about a month."

    "Some people think you should learn a coding language with the tools coding produces, i.e., a computer. Generally I would agree because of the variety of learning options online. This book was published by MIT Press though and it's an exceptional resource for learning Scheme."
