I'm just a beginning woodworker, but this is a great resource.
It's full of huge, gorgeous shots of wood, cuts, examples and tools. It covers the wide range of methods and materials with great detail but remains accessible.

I checked this out from the public library and am considering purchasing a copy for reference.

What it could use - coverage of how to begin. What's the best set of tools to buy first? What are the essentials? What are the best first projects to tackle to build your repertoire?

I've seen reviews of other books where the recommended alternative is this book, and I can understand why. ( )
