Forgive me for asking, but how could that book help me down the road? Scheme seems so obscure to me. I was at the bookstore and checked it out, and was mildly intimidated by it, although the illustrations were cute.

I ended up purchasing Practical Programming. Thank you all for your recommendations, some I have saved into my reading list.
