Any Windows Phone 8 development books for beginners?

    I would like to jump into building WP8 apps but I am having a hard time finding resources for beginners. I am front-end dev and have some php experience so I am not a beginner in web dev but I have never used C#/XAML. 

    Are there any good books out that will start from the very beginning of WP8 development?

    Actually there are video tutorials here on Channel 9 at

    (The "Windows Phone 7 Development for Absolute Beginners" series is also mainly relevant for WP8 development, too).

    I was already familiar with C#, but hadn't used XAML when I created my first WP app, and I learned quite easily following video tutorials here in C9.
