A good comprehensive guide for the beginner. This book covers free weights as well as weight machines and even includes a chapter (too brief, I thought) on pilates and yoga. The book cannot take the place of working with an experienced trainer but would be a great supplement.
Good overview on weight training. It has enough information to start your own home workout (both for planning and implementation). Additionally, it touches topics like nutrition and yoga in relation to weight training very lightly.

Excellent beginners guide. Filled in a lot of holes left by advisers at all the gyms I've been to. No matter how many questions you think to ask, there will always be plenty more you don't know to ask - this book really helps with that!
