I got this book based on a similar recommendation from a friend. IMO, 
it's a book about how to implement a Scheme in Scheme. About 20 of the 
500+ pages are about OO and basically just show how to emulate them 
with case statements in Scheme. Btw, anyone know of any good books 
about implementing OO languages in C?
