I've tried simpler guitar lesson books, but they did not go into detail or explain things for complete beginners. I had almost given up on learning guitar. However, after reading the first few chapters of this book, I was able to learn some chords and play simple songs within 3 days. It has many useful tips for practicing. Contrary to most lesson books, this one also includes information on how to maintain your instrument.
