Amazing XNA Book, 29 Feb 2008
'Learn Programming Now' is a brilliant introductory book to programming, XNA and game development. It introduces many of the complex ideas and concepts in programming through game development, and teaches the XNA framework in an easy to understand manner, introducing themes gradually, expecting no previous knowledge of programming.
It is well presented, and as well as being interesting and informative, it is a humorous and entertaining read with many analogies and funny stories.
It also makes you aware of not just XNA, but programming in a broader sense, making you think about how to approach a problem, and work out a way to solve it.
It is the perfect book for anyone interested in making games, and learning about Programming. I own many, many books on programming, and four on XNA, and I definitely recommend this to anyone starting out in programming or game development
