Perfect Gift Cookbook? [moved from General Chowhounding Topics]

I collect cookbooks, I've got a ton see: http://spicedish.typepad.com/spice_di...

But most are vintage and not super helpful to anyone just learning to cook. I have a friend who it trying to teach himself to cook. He knows how to boil water and broil a steak so he's not a complete beginner... but I want to get him one book that will teach him the basics and just a little bit more. Any suggestions?
