I've used Hal Leonard's book actually...and it is a series of a quite a few books (not really sure how many, my school carried #1 and 2) and it goes REALLY slowly--you'll want to skip ahead all the time--, so if you aren't in a classroom setting it may be hard for you to patiently go through the book. Other than that it's a great book, with very detailed explanations, and it set me off in a good direction with my guitar playing--just be ready to jump ahead alot unless you're a disciplined player

Sorry...I ramble a lot
