I'm new to the cycling world and I'd like to learn more about how to maintain/repair a mountain bike. Can anyone recommend a good book to guide me through bike repairs?

I too am new to this and went to my local library to see what they had. I ended up checking out a new book, published just last year, called "Mountain Bike Maintenance: The Illustrated Manual" by Mel Allwood. I think I am going to buy this book because it is really good, and easy to understand with great pictures. I just looked it up on Amazon.com and it has great reviews there as well.
Mountain Bike Maintenance (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/155297734X/qid=1118980555/sr=1-3/ref=sr_1_3/104-0619462-9631920?v=glance&s=books)
Check to see what your library has or local book store and take the time to look through some books, but I would say it is hard to get much better than this for a beginners book.
