need 2 be lrning teh IPA plz

What are good texts for teaching oneself IPA (and any necessary prerequisites for non-linguists)? I would like to know for the purpose of doing certain things related to computational linguistics (and related AI fields), and just knowing how to pronounce something correctly when I see it written in IPA form. I may also learn a little about the historical development of accents, but that's more of a side interest.

On a side note, does anyone know what professions, which aren't directly related to linguistics, is it used for? For example, do voice actors use it? For that matter, what about stage actors?
