    Starting Out in Chess by Byron Jacobs gets good reviews on the Amazon.com website. One of the reviews is by the Midwest
    Book Review, which is a reputable reviewer.

    I've also found all of John Nunn's books to be excellent, at least for me.

    Gary's Adventures in Chess Country is worth investigating imo.
