Any Good Direct X books for beginners out there?

I'm looking for any Good reference book for DirectX 9.  I'm also need information on what books you recommand on learning DirectX in general.

Thank you for your time.

Provided you have some rudimentary programming skills already ...
Introduction to 3D Game Programming with DirectX 9.0
Introduction to 3D Game Engine Design Using DirectX 9 and C#
Beginning DirectX 9 (Game Development Series)
Most have DX 10 versions in print now and as there is increasingly a lack of backwards compatibility you should start learinng the more recent iterations.

Thanks :)
Start with the first one (with the dragon on the cover!), watch out for guides including CD worked examples as the CD versions change more frequently than the print versions & often the examples in the book and on the disks don't tie up properly.  It's not a bad thing just look out for it as it can get confusing if you're not expecting it.
