Hands down, one of the BEST books on yoga I have ever read. It is easily accessible for the beginner, breaking down even the basic poses into pieces for you to work on as you deepen into the pose. It is a perfect example of how yoga is not something that you do with your body, but rather, something that you do with your mind AND your body. He offers the concepts of working your edge, and remaining relaxed but extended.

There is an excellent section on meditation that can get you started or deepen this aspect of your practice. And, using his step-by-step instructions, I finally learned how to do the headstand (shirshasana) that the woman is doing on the cover, which I could never quite do before. Hint: it's all about finding your inner balance.

one of my favorite yoga books, and the one I refer to time and time again. Covers everything, from history and fundamentals, meditation, all of the basics to prepare beginners and more advanced alike. Covers all of the asanas/poses, many broken down into sections for each area of the body and/or desired benefits. It doesn't just show a few photos - it goes into depth about each pose, helping you to work through it step by step.
Also information on building routines, either those recommended or one of your own.

Just a great yoga book all around! Erich Shiffmann is an awesome instructor.
