Sam's teach yourself C++ in 1 hour a day.

Awesome beginner book, holds your hand through every single chapter, every line of code.
Since im still only a few months into programming, I still refer back to this book. It has sticky notes throughout the book for quick referencing :D. This book along with Effective C++ by Scott Myers makes a good combo and good habits!

Same here! While it wasn't my first book. It was definitely what really got me hooked. I couldn't put that book down for weeks.

I think it was Pascal: An Introduction to Methodical Programming. Well, it may not have been quite the first, but it was an important book for me.

I think I bought chess books before programming books, does that count?
