Python is often touted as a good first language. I don't know of any good books, but, as with all programming languages, there are a plethora of tutorials online, no need for a book (as an added advantage, you can copy-paste code from an online tutorial, but not a book).

Also, please see the many other threads in this forum about getting started in programming / game development.
