I'm new to programming.
Is it a good idea to ramp up to Arc by using a resource like this book to first learn Lisp? (http://landoflisp.com/)
I've only taken one class in C++ and have some rough html/css/JS hacking ability. That said, I want to start learning Arc as my first real progamming language for hacking. It seems really powerful and liberating. Is it possible to start with it or should I learn another dialect of lisp first?
