Ok, since this keeps getting brought up over & over I'm making this a sticky.

Please visit the Getting Started in HAM Radio thread in The Repository for questions pertaining to becoming a licensed Amateur radio operator.

Many of the same resources that I keep seeing referenced are already listed there.

Thanks,
DEV

Remember that you don't have to have a Kindle to read Amazon e-books.  You can download a free app to your computer to read them.

Found another one that is free today.  It has three reviews.

Wowsers, those books are... bad. Very easy to tell that neither author has either (1) a license, or (2) any experience at all with any kind of radio beyond the AM/FM one in the car.

Each is about a 20-30 minute read, and have the appearance of a college freshman English 101 essay where the instructor said, "Write a 20-page research paper on a topic you don't know anything about, and you must also use a language in which you are only 85% fluent."

Information ranges from disorganized (at best), to illogical and just flat out wrong (one of the books explained that hams have been using mobile radios in their cars since the 1920s). Not at all recommended, even at a price tag of $0.00.   8)
