Im really interested at starting programming, i dont know nothing programming, so making a research i decide to start learning right form java programming, making more researches i start reading "Thinking in Java" book. But i dont know how much i need to know to start at making even the most simple game or learning gaming programming.

And any recommendation for any java game programming book?

Java The Complete Reference is a good book.

In order from easiest IMO to harder:

Introduction to Programming with Greenfoot: Object-Oriented Programming in Java with Games and Simulations

Programming Video Games for the Evil Genius

Beginning Java SE 6 Game Programming, 3rd Ed.

Developing Games in Java

Killer Game Programming in Java

You'll probably want to check out Killer Game programming for sure though since you can check out the source code and an older version of the book online for free.
Don't talk about writing games, don't write design docs, don't spend your time on web boards. Sit in your house write 20 games when you complete them you will either want to do it the rest of your life or not * Andre Lamothe
