When using these kinds of cables, you’ll need to have access to another car in order to charge your battery. But there’s also possible to charge without another car, in which case you will need a portable battery charger, which might look like this:

Book recommendation:

We didn’t find a book dealing solely with how to use jumper cables, probably because it isn’t really that big of a deal that anyone would actually be capable of writing an entire book on such a small subject. However, we were able to localize a nice little guide dealing with a multitude of subjects related to – yes, you guessed it – car stuff. It’s called The Ride GuideWhat You Don’t Know CAN Hurt You! and we believe it is a good choice. Check it:
