"Realm of Racket: Learn to Program, One Game at a Time!" By Matthias Felleisen, Conrad Barski M.D., David Van Horn and Eight Students Northeastern University, 1st Edition.

Fun programming with Racket

What exactly is Racket? Racket is a fairly new programming language that is derived from the Lisp family to be a platform for design and implementation. This book is written for those who want to launch their education in computer science or to those who want to expand their knowledge and experience in programming. It is recommended that you have some form of programming experience when reading through this book.

The authors’ tone is humorous and informative. The authors did a great job in using games and comics to keep the reader engaged and interested. The comics and pictures are refreshing to looking at and make the concepts easy to understand. Also, the source code of the games in the book are available with the code case of Racket in the collects/realm/ folder.

I highly recommend this book for anyone who is interested in exploring a unique world of programming.
