I can't *not* mention classics like SICP (Free, comes with retro-wave videos, easily found on-line), and The {Little,{R,S}easoned} Schemer series (not free, and not for everyone). Both of these focus on Scheme, which as you probably know is a very elegant minimal dialect of Lisp.

With that out of the way, and as much as I enjoyed them, I don't think either can be described as swiss army knives.

I just last week downloaded ‘The Land of Lisp’[0] for a friend. It's definitely more modern and a lot more silly, aims to help you ‘learn Lisp, one game at a time’, and sounds the hands-on introduction you're looking for.

In the more serious camp: I've heard good things about Practical Common Lisp. Unlike Land of Lisp, it's freely available on-line[1].

I can't personally vouch for either, but I hope to have been of service.

Kind regards,
