I wrote one, but it is in Italian, sorry! Coming from Python, the
disturbing thing about Scheme is the abundance of implementations.
you have to chose an implentation and stick to it. It is possible that
will improve the situation, but right now portability between
for non-trivial code is still a dream. An implementation which is
practical and with many libraries is Chicken Scheme (which also has
similar to Python eggs but better, since Chicken got them first ;)
