Hands down...Living on Live Food by Alissa Cohen! (but of course! ;) )
Check this out: http://rawfoodtalk.com/showthread.php?t=21157&highlight=living+on+live+food+this+needs+to+be+sai d
Also, 12 Steps to Raw by Victoria Boutenko is another good one I really like

Theres an ebook out there called "The RAW Secrets"

Alissa's book, Living on Live Food is the absolute best in my opinion! It is chock full of information, including shopping lists and menus for the first four weeks. (Not to mention inspiring testimonials and scads of recipes!) Don't let the "high" price dissuade you--this is a BIG book, and well worth the price.
I also liked Victoria Boutenko's Green for Life, which goes into great detail about the science behind green smoothies.
A newly raw friend of mine from church is reading VB's 12 Steps to Raw and has been raving about it.
There are also tons of raw uncookbooks out there, including one on desserts that I've got my eye on. But for information to help you with going raw and staying raw, Alissa's book rawks!!

There's a free ebooklet out called: "10 Most Asked Question About Raw Food" here: http://shopping.popsproductions.com/.
I also highly recommend Alissa's book AND dvd's. They will make your whole raw food journey soooo much easier.
Join a meetup group in your area as well. If there isn't one, start one.

As well as Alissa's, Ani Phyo's Raw Food Kitchen is a good one as most recipe's don't need any special equipment like a dehydrator.

I really appreciate the replies. You all are amazing!
Thanks for the break down thread on the raw food book by Alissa. : )
So, now it's time to talk to the parents and try and get the 3 of us on the road to health. Besides, it's better to be spiritual if you eat live foods as well. Only makes sense. : ) I am very on the spiritual path .. meditation, reiki, etc etc. list goes on. Also learning feng shui as career ...
anyway ... thank you again and will keep posted!

Alissa's book was invaluable to me when first going Raw. I don't think it is expensive at all. It has tons of recipes and lots of infomation.
Buy it... you will not regret it.

Not to beat a dead horse but yes Alissa's living on Live Food is still the most comprehensive and supportive. I also strongly recommend the companion DVD. I have about 40 raw food books and will always recommend her's first.
I second the Green for Life and Ani Pyho's Kitchen & Matt Amsden's RawVolution too.
Raw books tend to come under several headings.
Choose which area you are interested in and we can give you more recommendations based on your criteria.:)
If you are beginning get the Raw basics but I would also recommend one gourmet (Raw Food Rea World) just for the inspiring photos if you can swing it; it's on the pricey side.
