Default A better book for beginners

For those that are having a bad time to follow this book. Perhaps you should buy this other book: "XNA GameStudio Creator's guide" from Stephen Cawood and Pat McGee. It a great book for begginners and help us from the start, explaing all the code and where to put it. I think that after finishing this book, I can get back to the one of this forum.

Yeah,this book isn't so great for beginners like me. I think I'm going to drop XNA and come back to this book and XNA later.

Someone recommended me to Programming For Teens. I am 14 so this book sounds just about right :). It's in another language though,hopefully I can transfer what I learn to XNA...

The book that I suggested before was this one:
Microsoft® XNA Game Studio Creators Guide by Stephen Cawood and Pat McGee
http://www.amazon.com/Microsoft%C2%A...6738834&sr=8-2

But now I bought this other book that can be even more easy to follow for begginers. The guy that wrote the book explains everything in a simple way, allowing everyone to understand it, even people with no knoledge of game programming like myself.

Microsoft(R) XNA(TM) Unleashed: Graphics and Game Programming for Xbox 360 and Windows (Unleashed)
http://www.amazon.com/Microsoft-XNA-...6738834&sr=8-3

So, these three books are a must have for all people learning XNA.
