Indentation doesn't matter to the Lisp interpreter, but it does to human
readers of your code.

If you're interested in Emacs Lisp, there is both tutorial-style and reference
documentation available from the Info documentation collection (C-h i).

Another approach would be to read a book on Common Lisp, then learn the
differences between it and Emacs Lisp.
"Practical Common Lisp" by peter Seibel is available online here, and I would
recommend it.
