Judged on its avowed intention of getting you started - nothing more, nothing less - we'd say this is as good a guide as any to begin tackling the fundamentals of guitar, and to have some fun into the bargain. As with any good beginner's guide, author Tom Fleming wants to get you into good habits from the off (hence the info on posture, correct hand position, the importance of tuning, guitar notation and so on). The book introduces songs early on, from Greensleeves to Green Day, covers basic lead-playing concepts, and the backing tracks on the CD are good too.

Starting off on the road to playing guitar well is daunting, not least regarding what tutorial sources are worth your time and pennies. Try this then - Tom Fleming's The Ultimate Guitar Tutor. It's a bold title, but it does do a good job at priming you from posture to strumming rhythm exercises, and chord shapes to string bends. Throughout there are short examples to hone your skills and a generous amount of songs to learn by Elvis Presley, Nirvana and REM. As a tenner would rarely get you an hour's tuition with a guitar teacher these days, we reckon even if you have a few beginner books already this one should be added to the pile!
