Another book you should also consider, Matt, is Nightwatch - also by Terence Dickenson. Although there is overlap between the two, Nightwatch has some great "beginner-friendly" skycharts. We also have Serge Brunier's Great Atlas of the Stars, which has excellent photographs of the "naked eye" sky for locating some objects - there is a review of this book in May's S&T.
There are lots of fine books out there' a sampling can be found here:

I think my next purchase will be Atlas of the Lunar Terminator, though I'd like to buy most of the others.
