You can learn about the differences between versions, and get the accompanying software, from the book's Web site. You can get the same PDF version of the book, free of cost, from its Web site. This is to give you a choice: if you want to pay the author, get it from here; if you don't (or can't afford to), get it for free from there.

    "This book is great!" This book is just great, it walks you through the creation of various interpreters for different programming languages, in a simple and easy-to-understand way. You can inspect different aspects of languages, like lexical vs dynamic scope, typed vs dynamic, lazy vs eager, etc; playing with your own interpreter. The interpreters are written in Scheme, but no advanced feature is used, you can learn the Scheme used in the book in a day. I'm very thankful to Shriram Krishnamurthi for having written this book.
