Question Books for Newbies

I love these forums, but I'm getting overwhelmed. Can anyone suggest books that helped them get grounded on the basics of maintenance and operation.

+1 on this book, bought it while we were waiting for our AS to be delivered. Read it a few times and now keep it in the AS while traveling.
