Dungeons and Dragons Player's Handbook : Core Rulebook I v. 3.5 by Monte Cook
A guest review from Teen Room Staff Jeremy!
This is the first book you must become familiar with if you wish to play Dungeons and Dragons. It's full of everything you need, ranging from races to spells. Eventually, you'll be able to move onto more advanced texts, like the Monster Manuel or the Dungeon Master's Guide, but starting off you should focus on the basics, and the basics are contained in this great text.
Not surprisingly, I love this book, and I'd recommend it to anyone who is interested in playing this great game.
