This book goes into some of the more advanced uses of macros and I don't believe most carries over to other "lisps".
I really loved the section on reader macros!! That's a topic that doesn't get enough attention from people coming to common lisp.
I don't believe clojure, for example, supports user defined reader macros, atleast I can't remember it having them the last time I used it(circa 2011).
EDIT, it looks like clojure does have reader macros now. Clojure just keeps getting better:)
In addition to Let over Lambda, my common lisp reading list includes:
I'd love to hear if anyone else has book recommendations in a similar vein. I'm in the middle of a month off to read books and research papers so this is pretty timely for me:)

The book is in two parts. The first starts from a simple evaluation function and enriches it with multiple name spaces, continuations and side-effects with commented variants, while at the same time the language used to define these features is reduced to a simple lambda-calculus.
The second part focuses more on implementation techniques and discusses precompilation for fast interpretation: threaded code or bytecode; compilation towards C. Some extensions are also described such as dynamic evaluation, reflection, macros and objects.
Note that Peter Norvig gives it a five-star review.

Take a look to Lisp in Small Pieces if you are interested in something beyond the metacircular evaluator from SICP.
Read the code of Racket, you will learn a lot from it.

SICP is also amazing...and there are at least three sets of videos to go with the book (Abelson/Sussman and HP/MIT, ArsDigita, and UC-Berkeley.)
