My (pricey) favourite is Lisp In Small Pieces: http://www.amazon.com/Lisp-Small-Pieces-Christian-Queinnec/d...

Note that Peter Norvig gives it a five-star review.

Everyone beat me to the punch, but my starting list for Common Lisp is:

1. A Gentle Introduction to Symbolic Computation. http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~dst/LispBook/index.html

2. Practical Common Lisp http://www.gigamonkeys.com/book/

3. ANSI Common Lisp http://www.paulgraham.com/acl.html

4. On Lisp http://www.paulgraham.com/onlisptext.html

5. Paradigms of Artifical Intelligence Programming http://norvig.com/paip.html

6. Lisp in Small Pieces http://www.amazon.com/Lisp-Small-Pieces-Christian-Queinnec/d...

SICP is also amazing...and there are at least three sets of videos to go with the book (Abelson/Sussman and HP/MIT, ArsDigita, and UC-Berkeley.)
