The code just after the paragraph

This construct is so useful that there is a special form called let to make its use more convenient. Using let, the f procedure could be written as”

should be this:

(define (f x y)
  (let ((a (+ 1 (* x y)))
        (b (- 1 y)))
    (+ (* x (square a))
       (* y b)
       (* a b))))
