/ Best Beginner's Rock Climbing Instruction book
Rock Climbing - Mastering Basic Skills by Craig Luebben is a pretty clear guide, although it's written with American climbing lingo.

More seriously it is well worth having a look at the Rockfax Climbing+ books. They have specific ones on Sport, Trad and Winter - http://www.rockfax.com/climbing-guides/books/?view_type=grid
9 out of 10 climbers make the same mistakes.
A different kind of instruction as it doesn't mention anything about rope work...But if their goal is to climb better it might be suitable.
Depending on the level of experience, 'Go Climb' covers all the basics. Uses big clear photo's and comes with a dvd that covers each chapter.
Lets Go Climbing by Colin Kirkus
"9 out of 10 Climbers Make The Same Mistakes" is not a beginners book in the slightest if you ask me. It's great if you want to push your grade, but a beginner doesn't want to do that. A beginner should just learn to be safe.
I'd recommend Trad Climbing +, it's a brilliant overview IMO, and while some of the techniques aren't the most efficient, it teaches you to be safe.
