This book has potential so far and I like it. Though I would love to get into game development early on, I still need to know how Lua works. Sure that book I can expect covers whatever you needed to know without too much info, yet, this looks to be a good read for anyone wanting to get the jist of things.
In the meantime, I'm reading Lua programming language to make it easier to understand and know how they work. I can wait for as long as needed.
