However, "Practical Common Lisp" by Peter Seibel is what we give new hires at ITA Software when they arrive and don't know Common Lisp yet. I voted for that (despite my obvious interest in "Common Lisp: The Language", the first edition of which I am a co-author). If you know how to write software and want to learn Common Lisp, "Practical Common Lisp" is your best bet. See http://www.gigamonkeys.com/book/.

I've found this site useful as a reference when I've finished my own solutions to the exercises.
