After waiting patiently for nearly two months, SICP is finally here.

Pulling it from the box and seeing it "in the flesh" for the first time was a little magical. The cover is enchanting. A wizard appears to be casting a spell. There's a mysterious lambda floating in the air.

Who knew a computer programming book could be so seductive? The cover superbly captures the mystique of the contents.

I can't wait to dive in and begin casting spells in Scheme.
