I used this book to learn Lua (for use in implementing a little database). The book is concise and to the point, and it tells you the most important stuff first, while letting you wait until later to learn about esoterica. It includes some fairly complex sample programs, as well as documentation for the most important libraries.

Information wants to be free, so make some free information.
