I'm personally partial to the classic beginners books by Reinfeld and Chervev, but that's admittedly sentimental, as it is from them that I learned chess. Almost all of these books are also out of print now, as they are in descriptive notation and have never been "converted" to algebraic. Still, these two authors really had a flair for teaching chess, and their enthusiasm for the game is apparent when one reads their books. Votes go to "Chess in a Nutshell" by Reinfeld and "An Invitation to Chess" by Chernev & Harkness.
