Doffing his fez with an impish grin, The Sussman returns.

You heard it here first, folks. The Sussman's next book, Software Design for Flexibility, will be out soon. Abelson talked about it at around 25:45 in this interview from last year: https://corecursive.com/039-hal-abelson-sicp/, and it's named in the documents linked at the page for the "Advanced Symbolic Systems" course that Sussman is currently teaching: https://groups.csail.mit.edu/mac/users/gjs/6.945/

It's a graduate level class, meaning the book will likely be a step up from SICP. To whet your appetites while you wait, you can find talks Sussman has given over the past several years on Youtube, where he talks about a lot of the same principles regarding flexibility.

Now that The Sussman has four mind-bending books out, we might consider replacing satori with the Theraveda Four Stages of Nirvana:

SICP - Stream Entry
SICM - Once-Returning
Functional Differential Geometry - Non-Returning
Software Design for Flexibility - Arhantship
