Also, if you want a good book to cover in black fingerprints on your workbench, Lennard Zinn's "Zinn and the Art of Mountain Bike Maintenance" is a good one. It covers all levels of work, from the basics up to tearing into your suspension. It also lists different types of tools that the beginning mechanic should acquire and so on. He also includes tricks to unforeseen field repairs with just the basic stuff you ride with. The illustrations are great, and are all done by a local artist.
