Ok ... sometimes those of us who grew up gardening forget how much most people don't know ...
firstly ... put simply transpiration is how roots take in moisture, then it travels up through the plant and out through the leaves where it evaporates ... the evaporation takes place quicker in sunny and windy conditions. It's sort of the plant's equivalent of breathing.
This site explains a lot of gardening terms
I don't know of other books ... perhaps someone else will ... but please don't be afraid to ask any questions on here, even if you think it's very basic ... we're always happy to help ... someone usually knows the answer
and you may find some help in the How to... section of this website http://www.gardenersworld.com/how-to/
