The Scheme Programming Language [1] and Teach Yourself Scheme in Fixnum
Days [2] are available online and are good, fast-paced introductions to
scheme if you already know how to program.

How to Design Programs [3] is a more general book, and like SICP [4] has
more to do with ideas about process and computation then with the
language itself (i.e. syntax and the like). if you know how to program,
HTDP may be a litte boring, but SICP will be mind blowing if you are an
experienced programmer.
