    Hey Joe,
    I'm also 15 and began programming recently. The book I used to start off with was Beginning Programming with Java For Dummies. It's great if you have little experience with Java and can get you started in no time.

    joe, sometimes those for dummies books that have the 9 books in one are even harder than the single book because it brushes over core concepts so quickly, I would suggest trying out the regular Beginning Programming with Java For Dummies, it has many more examples and projects.

    I'd recommend reading head first java. It takes everything fairly slow with pretty good examples. It also contains a broad range of of coverage. It touches on everything a little bit. When you see an example, be sure to type it in, compile it, and run it. Keep track of how it runs, then take a second to understand what the program does.

    Something else to try.. In iTunes, there is a section called iTunesU. In it, search for "programming methodologies". It is basically an entire semester of java programming basics from Stanford University.

    It helps, although not as much as being able to ask questions, this website has become invaluable to me.

    But those videos are really good at getting ya started.
