Ask Slashdot: Best Book For 11-Year-Old Who Wants To Teach Himself To Program? 525

Posted by timothy
from the it-isn't-huckleberry-finn dept.
New submitter waferthinmint asks "What is the best book for my son to use to teach himself to program? He wants to study on his own but everything seems to assume an instructor or a working theoretical knowledge. He's a bright kid but the right guide can make all the difference. Also, what language should he start with? When I was in HS, it was Basic or Pascal. Now, I guess, C? He has access to an Ubuntu box and an older MacBook Pro. Help me Slashdot; you're our only hope."
