let's face it... some of us arent exactly programming material. but i believe that anything can be accomplished through hard work and sacrifice. So, i have this awesome book to reccomend to you, it is C ++ for dummies, and after reading this book cover to cover i can testify i am a better programmer in spite of it. Stephen Randy Davis, the author , makes the book interesting to read, adding some humerous anticdotes or making fun of someone famous because... well he can . i strongly reccomend this book for anyone starting out, it cost me bout 24 $ in US so good luck !
