Someone with no experience whatsoever

I wan't to teach myself an applicable programming language. I want to one day become a well rounded programmer and perhaps develop a phone app.

For someone without the slight clue about programming, which language should I start?

What is the most modern/popular language (what language does Apple/Microsoft/Google want?

What's the most fun and practical language?

And for the questions above, what is a good book to accompany me? college text book preferred... but there probably won't be any for an absolute beginner.

THANKS COMMUNITY!
