Default Seeking programming books


I have been thinking to pick up Visual Basic for about 10 years. I started when I was 13 but then I found girls and etc and didnt put effort into it.

I am 23 now and since I am no longe gaming entustiast except the few good text simulations or rpgs I am thinking to start leaning VB again.

I want to be able to write Text-Based game like World Champions Boxing Manager or TEW 2010 or Manager type of game or text based RPG.

I have zero knoledge of programming. I know basic stuff how the stuff works and know html languache and how to operate on office excel etc..

What should I do and which books should I seek to download? Just few pointers what to learn and what small games I need to master before trying to make a game of my own

-teach yourself visual basic 6 in 21 days;
-visual basic 6 black book(becarefull with some topics, because need declare some API's and some samples aren't correct\good);
-Win32 API Programming with Visual Basic, Fourth Edition;
-and Course Technology - Microsoft Visual Basic Game Programming for Teens - 2005 - (By Laxxuss)(these book uses directX, but you can do very things with API graphics. except, maybe, 3D.).
