Im looking for a nice music theory book not necessarily pertaining to guitar, but music in general. I would like it to start right at the basics and work it all the way up to some of the most advance. Id like it to be a nice book and hardback, im willing to shuck up some money for it, so I was wondering if anyone had any in mind?

All comments are appreciated.
the complete idiots guide to music theory is very good for basic-intermediate topics.
make Industrial and/or experimental electronic music? Join my group!

I highly, highly recommend this series called the "Almanac of Guitar Voice-Leading" by Mick Goodrick and Mitch Haupers (my harmony professor). Despite the name, it's a new, but very intuitive and crucial insight into harmony in general.

...modes and scales are still useless.
