Indeed, great resources here but perhaps for a total newb you might start at the very beginning and get a decent book. Problem with books can be by the time they're printed a % of the content is out of date such is the speed of change in how the big boys like Google change algorithms. I think however you might benefit from the "For Dummies" (no offence intended) but the SEO for Dummies is a good option for a total beginner as its puts lots of elements into context in the greater scheme of SEO. You can even get it in your library and skip over any bits that are already known to you. In tandem spend time sifting through here HTH
