I am teaching myself how to program. But there seems to be a big gap between intro courses/resources (CodeCademy, O'Reilly books, Learn X the Hard Way) and Actually Doing Things. Help me figure out a road plan? [more inside]

Does anyone know of a book (site, magazine, DVD, anything) that, preferrably communicated in a non-specific programming language (e.g. - pseudocode, if possible), illustrates real world pros and cons of procedural vs. OOP coding and vice versa?
I don't want a religous war on why one is better than the other; but rather a (fairly) objective look at both with the who/what/where/when/why/how of any specific reasons for more efficient use of either.

Can anyone suggest a book, website, etc. that describes the process of breaking a problem down in order to write a program. I have struggled for far too long trying to figure out how to write a program from scratch only to be stumped by the logic involved.
This question, I think, is outside of a specific language or philosophy (Java, OOP, et al.). It's just something I haven't been able to get my head around.
