I guess I recommend that book, Kernighan and Ritchie (second edition), 
supplemented by something else to cover the stuff added in 1999.

Good question. C+ doesn't exist; C++ is a separate language, mostly a 
superset of C, but not perfectly compatible. C++ has a lot more stuff, 
mostly "objects".

I guess you could start with C, and maybe add C++ later. That's if you 
want to learn to program, which is a big project. There's also an 
argument that a beginning programmer should learn some newer language.
