Book or online guide to beginning programming

Hi, Can anybody help me out with the name of a book or online guide for beginning programming. More an understanding of the bare-bones concepts of programming rather than a specific language. Beginner's guide basically. Many thanks.

codecademy is a good start.  Learn basic html and css.  Then go to javascript.  From there go to a server language like php
