Mindfulness in Plain English by Bhante Gunaratana. This book is clearly and comfortably written, comprehensive and intelligent yet full of simple basics on how to and why meditate.

I've had a friend strongly recommend it, as well. I'll try to pick it up...

Actually the whole thing is freely available online. I'm pretty sure even with the authors consent. The first Google result is the one I've seen linked most, though the results point to a few other sites offering it as well.
