It is an outstanding book, but maybe not the best choice for someone who
doesn't know programming at all. The book assumes some programming
experience. So PiL might work better as a second, or later, book.

Unfortunately there's no other book I know of that's entirely up-to-date.
You might find "Beginning Lua Programming"[1] a bit more gentle. As
I recall it's aimed at Lua 5.1, so it's relatively recent.

Hope this helps, P
