I'm playing for quite a while now but I've never touched the theory part of playing. I've learnt what I need at a given time and thats it.
Lately I got into learning theory but while searching the net I can only find information piled in no order.
I'd like to learn from a book which covers at least the basics of scales and such, starting as low as the major scale.
Is there any book like that on the net?

go for the guitar grimoire books, they're great. They've got one for just about every aspect of guitar... oh except music reading. They're still really helpful though.
Gear:
PRS SE Singlecut, blue with stoptail (my baby)
Line 6 Spider III 75 (shut up)
Epiphone Les Paul standard
Cheapo Yamaha nylon string
even more cheapo Fender steel string acoustic

Guitar Grimoire books are shi*. They are redundant, useless, lists of information they don't explain.


Check out The Idiots Guide To Music Theory.

YES
the idiots guide to music theory (and the idiots guide to soloing) basically taught me EVERYTHING i know about music theory.
and it taught me to LOVE music theory (most people think its boring).

Little solace comes
to those who grieve
as thoughts keep drifting
as walls keep shifting
and this great blue world of ours

If you're into metal, Troy Stetina has some nice books to improve your playing while learning theory.
A samurai once asked Zen Master Hakuin where he would go after he died. Hakuin answered 'How am I supposed to know?'
'How do you not know? You're a Zen master!' exclaimed the samurai.
'Yes, but not a dead one,' Hakuin answered.
