As a very first book and to get your feet wet in the art of knife making I would suggest purchasing a copy of:
Wayne Goddard $50 knife shop.
ISBN: 1440224919, 9781440224911
This covers the basics very well although the $50 price tag has gone up unless you find lots of the tools you need from local yard sales
