not having experience with the others, i agree with homebrewtastic. the complete joy of homebrewing breaks it down into skills for the beginner, intermediate, and expert making it great for all skill levels.

As someone who has read the first suggestion above, and is currently reading the second, I can attest to their quality.

However, if you've already got a year or so of brewing under your belt, How to Brew might be a slightly better option than the Complete Joy of Homebrewing.

Papazian is easy to digest, with enough substance to brew good beer. Palmer takes more work and offers more. For most new brewers I'd suggest Papazian. Those who wish will ultimately reach out for more and find Palmer. The richest resource I've found, though, is Noonan's "New Brewing Lager Beer". Believe me, it's not just for lager brewing.

Okay as per the first three replies I don't think that anyone should be allowed to post a book without an onomonopia.
