This is the best book I have found (and I've read plenty) to explain the core concepts and structures of programming.
It's well written and benefits from an author obviously aware of which concepts students struggle with which he takes the time to explain in very straightforward ways.
If you follow the exercises (which allow you to create interesting things anyhow) you'll really get the benefit and begin to think in a different way.
If you're looking to get into processing or wish to understand the core concepts behind object orientated language I highly recommend this book.
Coming from a background in PHP web development myself I was able to skim through the first half of the book, but beyond that, I'm learning lots of things very quickly.
Shiffman manages to communicate concept concisely and clearly, would reccomend this book to anyone interested in learning to program, regardless of prior experience.
I had the help of lecturers and practical assessment, but I'm certain you could learn this alone (it might just take a bit longer).
It also comes with a whole website which has the examples from the book, so you can see what they should look like and it has the starter code already done, so you don't have to type it out from the book.
The only (very slight) drawback is it's written by an American, so it uses certain phrases and things which are very "American". But this isn't a massive issue and I'm nitpicking really.
Although I have quite an experience with programming, I strongly believe it is an excellent book to get a newbie started. Lots of very helpful sample code and excellent support at book's website.
Furthermore, writer was available to discuss and answer delicate/advanced questions and references.

However there are also useful resources online. It is nice to have on paper though.
