XAML is the language used.  

The tutorials are long and complex.

I just need something basic for starters.

Cheers!

To answer your question about the books, its hard to say without knowing your end goal. Is all of this for fun or for work? Evaluate each book and see who it's geared to, read the opening chapter of each if thats an option, and see which book fits you and your goals best
