If you know c++ you know python. python is just a quicker version of c++. By quick I mean less text to write. I find it easlier for big programs.

C++ is the way to go, that and .Net.

I'd avoid C personally; I hate it. It's clumsy, outdated and lacks many useful key features, but it does run faster than C++.

I have the book "C++ deMYSTiFied" by: Jeff Kent.

It's $29 US. It is a great book though. It is awsome for beginners. He starts with "Hello World" and ends with structures and classes. I just finished functions and am starting arrays. The book is easy to understand and there are a lot of code samples and diagrams. He also talks about flow charts. I highly recommend this book.

Books are great for reference. Don't be ashamed of looking at a book all the time when you're learning, it's the only way you will learn.

Also, you can't move for good, free online tutorials. Try http://www.programmershelp.co.uk/c++tutorials.php and http://www.cprogramming.com/
