Hey Newb, well first off you need a compiler, that is a special program that you can type your code in and then the "compiler" will produce and .exe format. The book you have (i think) comes with one on the CD.

Also if you are really interested in the gaming aspect of programming i recommend that you look into gaming SDK's like values HL and HL2 sdk or quake's sdk or unreal tournament's sdk, and get into/join a modding scene, thats the best way to pick up how to program for games, here are some useful links good luck!
