The following 2 books are my all-time general project management favorites, and both will get you started:
The first one is a book by Klaus D. Tumuscheit. Unfortunately there doesn't appear to be an English translation available, which is a pity. The original is in German (Überleben im Projekt: 10 Projektfallen und wie man sie umgeht - ISBN-10: 3636012916) and there's also a Dutch translation (ISBN 9055941425). The advice given is timeless, not related to any industry (eg IT), funny, practical, as real as it gets, and just common good sense. If you master one of these languages, I highly recommend this book for seasoned or new project manager.
The interactive project workout 2nd Ed. Robert Buttrick, Prentice Hall, 2000, isbn 027364436X - very good, general text about PM, with a very good Project Life Cycle you can adapt to any project.3
On top of that, something you really can't do without as a starting PM is a good resource on the Work Breakdown Structure. After a long search I finally found what I think at the moment is the best resource on creating the WBS (and I've read a few!): "Building a Project Work Breakdown Structure: Visualising objectives, deliverables, activities, and schedules", Dennis P. Miller, CRC Press/ESI , 2009, isbn 978-1-4200-6969-3
