If, as you've said in previous posts, your interests lie in art rather than programming, DirectX will probably not be directly useful to you.

DirectX isn't just a program that you 'run'. It's a set of APIs that you use in your program. This requires a little evaluation on your part:

- Do you program? If so, what language, and how experienced are you?

- Do you have any experience with any game programming?

If the answer to these questions is 'no', it means is that you need to take some steps backward. Start Here!

Which book? You could read a dozen 900-page books on C++, and still not understand it. Have you made a lot of your own programs? Start off simple, and work yourself up. Game programming, and graphics programming especially, requires a very high level of proficiency in your language of choice.
