If your interested in Lisp as well as elisp, then you should also
check out SLIME, which I find to be a great lisp mode for emacs. Also,
for a good introductory book on Lisp, I'd highly recommend Practical
common Lisp by Peter Siebel. You can purchase the book, but its also
on-line at http://www.gigamonkeys.com/book/
