Default Recommended comprehensive training book for a beginner?

My friend recently got a beagle mix puppy (well to be accurate it's technically his mom's puppy, but he wants to and is doing the majority of the training). This is the first time he's raised a dog, but he really wants to do it well and is open to all information. Perhaps even a little too open, as he has already been advised in a number of dominance theory methods that could be harmful (his vet told him the 3 month old puppy wasn't showing proper respect and needed to be alpha rolled regularly ).

Anyway, I want to get him a solid beginners book, but most of what I have in my library is too specialized. Does anyone have any good recommendations? Preferably with positive methods, since physical corrections are more likely to cause problems if they're done incorrectly by a novice.
