When ten years ago someone asked me “what do you want to do when you grow up?” I answered, “I wanna be an IT guy”. Then the person asked another question: “do you know that you will have to learn and understand Math?”. I answered yes and kept this in my mind for the next ten years.
You’ve probably been using books since the first years at the school. You got used to learning from them. It doesn’t matter what you want to learn – physics, cooking, sports, photography – you always take a book. It’s the same with learning how to write code. You can find many programming books in your favorite bookstore and you probably spend tens of hours on selecting the right one.
