Thanks for info. Still trying to collect my in-brain catalogue of 
ideas/DPs from smart people like you. Its a pity that i can not
find roadmap in a single book :)

Already read SICP, but again
  - it doesn't provide implementation of amb (done by myself)
  - it doesn't mention about any NP-hard problems (AFAIR)
  - it says nothing about practical usage.
  - it doesn't compare with other solutions to similar problems

The only thing it provides is intuitive puzzle sample. It is really
great, but ... my must-read books/articles queue is still too long to 
fit in my lifetime.
