I have read excellent reviews of "Beginning C++ Game Programming" by Michael Dawson.

You can get it on Amazon and some amazon customers said that you can learn fluent C++ from it even if you don't want to make games.

Aside from that, i am sure its even better if games are your thing! ;)

My opinion is, as long as you are competent in C++, you can learn game programming without a book. There is a how-to get started in game programming video series by a game programmer on YouTube by the name of GyroVorbis. Here is a playlist link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n0B6Gbsu3N0&feature=PlayList&p=93FE4FF8C4CB5498&playnext=1&index=5. That's how I got started.

Hope it helps,

PS. I recommend the SFML API. It's really easy to use, powerful, and great for beginners! :D

If you already know C++, then I suggest you pick up Windows Programing (A.K.A. Win32 Programming). Game programming is nothing more than creating software with animated pictures.
