As an absolute beginner you can't go far wrong with any of the books by Scott Kelby and his book for Elements 8 can be found here
Now it has to be said right up front that if you are looking for a book with all manner of technical ins and outs then this isn't the book for you. However, if you are looking for a book that is essentailly written in the style of what I like to call a 'cooking book' then this is probably one of the best around. Basically, you follow word for word everything that Scott says and in the end you end up with pretty much the same quality of cake. For a beginner Scotts books are an excellent read and also very well illustrated.
