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.
