I think you have first to pick up a programming language , for me i am doing java so i can recommend 'teach yourself java in 21 days' to have a good start , then 'Introduction to java programming by Y.Daniel Liang' . Doing some projects and choosing a framework to work with is the best way to start learning , this book from my point of view is not suitable for beginners , good luck !

Thanks Omar :) I have actually picked up the basics of my first programming language and worked on a couple of my own projects. Definitely good advice before jumping into Code Complete! I was wondering if there was a good book that was just a little easier than Code Complete. Maybe I just need a bit more experience working with the code and other projects!

That's right . You can start searching for design patterns book , in order to write an efficient good , you can read 'Head first design patterns' and start read and implement concepts like [MVC ,MVP and MVVM] for your projects . For me i'm applying now days MVP on android , best of luck .
