Could I learn JavaFX from scratch or do I need previous
programming language knowledge?
Which is the JavaFX learning path?
PS. Congrats for your new book!

Learn basic Java and basic programming first, you don't need to know everything about Java APIs, but you need to be pretty fluent with the basic concepts and syntax.
Follow the Java Tutorial
"Trails covering the basics"
Pick up any of the many highly rated programming and Java books such as
Ignore any of the Swing tutorials in any of those courses so you don't confuse yourself - there is absolutely no need to learn Swing to learn JavaFX - they are completely seperate toolkits.
Then learn JavaFX:
Oracle JavaFX tutorials
Study an up to date book on JavaFX
JavaFX 8 by Example
(make sure it is the JavaFX 8 version).
Hendrik's book :-) "Mastering JavaFX 8 Controls".
