Vogue Knitting: The Ultimate Knitting Book (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/193154316X/ref=pd_sxp_f/103-7656710-4901409?v=glance&s=books)
It's a *tad* pricey for one book, but it's an invaluable reference for beginner AND seasoned knitters. You'll use it for YEARS to come.

Hello, Miss Knit!

I have Stitch N Bitch and Knitting for Dummies.... Both are helpful.

Here's a link to a similar thread for input - Click here (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1856)

Hope that helps a bit,

The Harmony Guide for Knitting is very basic and well-illustrated to get you through most stiches and techniques. Inexpensive, too.

Stitch N Bitch, most definitely!
