In Programming in Lua, Second Edition Roberto does a very good job of balancing the introduction of the language to the new Lua programmer, while keeping it interesting for the seasoned Lua programmer.

He points out clearly where a feature being discussed is only available in the newest versions of the language and still instills confidence that the book you are reading will be relevant as the language grows.

Coverage of the language and how to integrate with C is very through, although it would benefit the book to have a few larger, more complex, programming examples to give a feel for Lua in the large.

Overall I think it is a great introduction to the language and probably should be on every aspiring Lua programmers bookshelf (if it already isn’t).
