Best Sitepoint Books for a Learning to Create Templates?

Hey, I’m trying to get comfortable with creating some custom Wordpress Templates.
I’d love to just get one of the Sitepoint books and start but I admit I’m a bit overwhelmed by the sheer volume of titles.
What would be a good book or two to start learning?

You’re certainly correct that the number of choices can be overwhelming! Have you decided on a “way”?

Thanks for the article. I already use Genesis on another site of mine. I’ve thought about trying that. As for as starter themes I was actually giving UnderScores a look but got frustrated when I couldn’t do what I wanted to. That’s when I thought to take a look here at Sitpoint for a book.
