This one was suggested to me a few years ago and I still refer to it. Very enjoyable to read, and very informative. Get the whole set.

I think Scott Kelby's "Digital Photography" series is rubbish. Little real information, end enough nonsense to confuse beginners. Avoid. There is a longer review of it here: http://dpanswers.com/content/books_rev_kelbytdpb.php

You have to consider the OP's situation. He has to start taking photos right away and Kelby's volume one can get you started. it does not teach you photography but just gets you snapping and using your camera with some helpful tips.
