Contrary to popular belief, logic programming doesn't always mean programming in Prolog. In this groundbreaking book, Friedman and Kiselyov extend Scheme to form a completely new kind of logic programming system, one which is in many ways even more elegant than Prolog. Written in the same classic question-and-answer format as the authors' previous book The Little Schemer, The Reasoned Schemer covers goals, first-class relations, interleaved and non-interleaved backtracking, the relationship between relational and functional programming, and much more. Reading this book will not only cause your geek rating to skyrocket and impress all the Cool Kids, it will also open your eyes to a paradigm of programming which most programmers are completely unaware of, but which will undoubtedly play a significant role in the programming systems of the future. More importantly, though, this book is great fun to read and will make you a better programmer.(Michael Vanier, Caltech)
Really good introduction to the topic.
No where near as funny as advertised.
To the point and hinting at complications without getting distracted. Read more

Functional programming and programmed instruction is a great pair. If more programmers read this, the world would be spared much bad coding.Published 18 months ago by Leandro Guimarães Faria Corcete DUTRA
Careful and engaging walkthroughs of logic programming from bottom-up. No detail is missed, and you can implement your own system in any language from this description. Read morePublished 22 months ago by Brian Beckman
I read the Little Lisper when it first came out. I was already a proficient Lisp programmer but really enjoyed the presentation. This time around, I'm about to learn core. Read morePublished 24 months ago by Rick Evertsz
As others have said (and I did not listen), the Kindle version of this book is quite unusable : all the content are pictures and it's not possible to zoom. Read morePublished on March 10, 2013 by nanchen stanislas
The style of the the Reasoned Schemer is quite unique - at times refreshing yet at other times frustrating. Read morePublished on December 27, 2012 by Norman Richards
This electronic publication is useless.
Can't read a thing out of it. Most pages are images not text.
Zooming in doesn't help. Read more
So. I read the Little Lisper a couple of years ago and enjoyed it. I finally got around to buying this book last night for my new Kindle. BIG mistake. It is unreadable. Read morePublished on May 4, 2011 by Brian
