I've been told off for being rude. My intent was honourable even if
the execution lacked finesse.
My suggestion is: Just Write Some Code.
This will get you started much better than reading books. Write some code,
then read some documentation, improve your code, add some tests, make
your code shorter/faster/clear. Rinse and repeat.
