Each of the books mentioned will be good references to get you started. Like many folks, I learned a lot by watching Norm on New Yankee Workshop when it was on TV full time. There have been other TV shows as well, but it seems there’s not a lot to choose from at this point. Besides, the books will always be there for you to review.

Don’t feel like you MUST learn to do all joinery by hand. I’m a power tool junkie, do virtually everything with them, but still find there are things I can do by hand more efficiently at times. We each find our own balance in things like that and shouldn’t listen to others who insist on one way or another.
