Generally, I find that the easiest way of learning a new language, assuming you have at least some programming experience, is to follow these three easy steps:

1. Find a good website (like this one) with tutorials and examples and such.
2. Find a few relatively simple programs, and try to duplicate them.
3. If at all possible, try to find someone (a friend, relative, co-worker, etc.) who can walk you through your first few attempts.

These things seem to work pretty well for me; I hope they help.

[Discipulus]: The Count of Moret; The Red Sphinx is a single book appeared with different titles. it is one of the best and alot of understimed Dumas book.
choroba has only read the first two
[Discipulus]: if i can suggest La Reine Margot too is a great book and obviously The Count of Monte Cristo that is a chef-d'œuvre
[Discipulus]: The red sphinx is about Rechilieu, absolutely thrilling
[erix]: thanks, Discipulus - I got them lined up at gutenberg :)
[erix]: I red the musketeers and Monte Cristo but both a very long time ago (many decades ago)
