Actually...as a 'beginner' wanting to learn the basics, start with VMware documentation (see: http://www.vmware.com/support/pubs/vsphere-esxi-vcenter-server-pubs.html, select version 5.0 to start with), and the Guide I recommend is the 'vSphere Basics Guide': http://pubs.vmware.com/vsphere-50/topic/com.vmware.ICbase/PDF/vsphere-esxi-vcenter-server-50-basics-guide.pdf

After that, go through the Install Guide, then vCenter & Host Mgmt Guide, then VM Admin Guide. The rest will be as you get more familiar with the product.

Scott Lowe's book is indeed good...but to begin with, I recommend VMware docs I mentioned above.

Regards.
