I would recommend http://www.gameenginebook.com/index.html It is more high level then game coding complete, but still covers a lot of important
Reading books about game programming (expecially books that are focused on engine programming) without having a good programming knowledge, won't benefit anybody.
(damn I'm playing with fire... not recommending that book again...)
As said above.
Do yourself a favor and start now.
If you are interested in programming already, learn about it, I think anyone can assure you that you won't mix the syntax of the langauages if you pay a bit of attention
