No relation to the Saturday night live comedian, but Mike Meyers network plus ought to cover it. Easy to read, has a few pictures, well organized index, it's a great book and he updates them to stay current. Used might get a better price but not worth it if the content is outdated.

Hmmm, ok. What aspect do you want to learn about? Hardware? Exploits / vulnerability? Making a mesh or something at home?

I'm thinking of a introductory book to networking. Example: "Networking for dummies".

To be fairly honest... The CompTIA A+ and Net+ books are about as basic as it gets for beginners.

The most basic you can get would probably be this, https://www.amazon.com/Networking-Al...gateway&sr=8-3

Willing to bet such a book is more or less going to cause you headaches later on.
