"Great intro to Drupal" - by Everpat on 20-DEC-2012

I am a newbie to Drupal and to CMSes in general, and this book helped me to get familiar with it really quickly. It provides step by step instructions that actually work. Now, Drupal is massive, so there is still a lot to learn once you get through this book, but this book will help you to hit the ground running.

"Best book for Drupal Newbie!" - by Lynn Mooney on 11-AUG-2012

This is such a great book to help someone who is comfortable with a CMS in general, but kind of new to Drupal.  I'm just upset that I didn't find the first edition when I started working with Drupal 6.  It gives you small, manageable tasks to do that gradually step you into bigger and better features while keeping you from getting weighted down with all the options available.  

Great, great book!
