Your last sentence makes me think that you're referring to algorithm
design, not mere syntax style.  Things like learning to use closures and
continuations effectively, learning to express iterative processes with
recursive syntax, and so on.

If that's the case, I'm finding SICP[1] and The * Schemer series[2] very
interesting reads.  Even if you already know most of the concepts and
half the tricks in them, they are worth reading for the other half.
