I require book advices on acting for beginners. To understand and learn the basics of acting. Is there any suggestion?
Thank you for your time,

Several of the books on the aforementioned list are required reading for a lot of schools.
For the basics of the business side of acting, don't let the title deter you, this was surprisingly excellent:
Breaking Into Acting for Dummies
I used to stay away from "Dummies" books, because that's not how I saw myself. Then an acquaintance of mine, who's the senior editor for a well-regarded technical publisher, had nothing but good things to say about the Dummies line of books. Primarily, he felt that their biggest win was that they don't actually target dummies at all, but rather people who simply have no previous background in the given topic.
Thank you for all the responses listed above. I feel like I will make the move very soon after all.
Just bought the half of your list.. I admit.. It was a little bit expensive (:P) but it feels like I'm gonna learn so much new interesting things..
PS: I'm new in the forum and I know that in some forums you can "give" like "+1" or "give a thank" So if we can just tell me and I'll do it! and if we can't so.. THANKS MAN!!
I'd like to add that I've read most of these and the Esper SINGS to me.
