Practical Common Lisp Chapter 4 : Syntax and Semantics

- What's with All the Parentheses?
- S-expressions
- S-expressions As Lisp Forms
- Function Calls
- Special Operators
- Macros
- Truth, Falsehood, and Equality
- Formatting Lisp Code

This chapter was a bit of everything. Explaining the basics of the language, more history, breaking apart S-expressions and explaining the parts. Flashed out the details on topics already touched. Well written. No examples for me to code though.
