"Relax, don't worry, have a home brew."
If you're interested in learning how to home brew, this book is perfect.
As a newbie homebrewer, I found this book to be enormously helpful. Papazian is laid back, humorous, and incredibly knowledgeable. He stresses that fledgling homebrewers shouldn't worry overmuch about their beer, and offers a ton of great tips and some tasty recipes. Some home brew books tend to be pedantic or overly prescriptive ("you must not let the hot wort sit for more than a few minutes before cooling, or you will create off flavors" and "if you don't use exactly 2.3 gallons of water you will ruin the alpha acid concentration in your wort")...Papazian's book says none of this nonsense, which I appreciated.
