Did someone actually read SICP?

| My programming skills are just basic things in terminal, basic cycles like for, if, and introduction to OOP but didn't get it so much.. is SICP somehow interesting? What it is about?

| We conjure the spirits of the computer with our spells.

| SICP focuses on the "High level" aspects of computer science, serving as an intro to concepts like recursion, meta-compilers, DSLs etc. through Scheme. You'll see a lot of this in other Lisps and ML-Style languages (Ocaml, Haskell), but most OOP langs rejected these concepts as too hard to follow within their paradigm (and suffered for it, imo).
