dman is right, learn Python. It's great. And if you programmed previously,
you'll pick it up in an afternoon.

If you want to learn C++ I suggest"Essential C++". But if you really want to
learn C++, get "The C++ Programming language" by Bjarne Stroustrup. It's a
tough read, but you can't go wrong with the creator of C++.
