I really enjoyed Homebrewing for dummies. Made it all seem easier to me. Some terminology I had to get past...

Racking, is transfering to a secondary fermentation container.

The difference between an ale and a lager is lagers are fermented at refridgerator temps.

There's tons more, but it's 6am and I haven't had any coffee yet.

Jom, try to find a copy of Charlie Papazian's "Complete Joy of Homebrewing" - it's a very straightforward book and gives all the relevant info for a noob (like me!). My brews have been turning out, following his advice.
