Many Drupal trainers are using the Drupal Users Guide as a starting point for the Drupal classes.

Why do I recommend it to clients all the time? Because it totally lives up to what it says in the dedication page:
“For my mother, Maryann, who asked for the manual to her Web site.”
That's just what it is, the manual to your website.
Everett Zufelt took a long look at the guide and ultimately suggests it is a great source for new and beginning Drupal administrators:
This book is a very good resource and getting started guide to building and administering a successful site.
There are some great five-star reviews of the book on Amazon.com.

Emma Jane continues to be a voice that resonates with new Drupal users as well as themers of all levels with her clear writing style and holistic approach to building Drupal sites. This book is well-written with chapters about less-geeky, but equally important aspects of web site development (site planning, information architecture, usability) that are often ignored in other Drupal books.

Hogbin spends the first third of the book instructing you on what goes into a great site. I never realized how vital that is to a person who has little experience in building real sites. ... I highly recommend this book and I have added it to my list of books I give my clients.
