The two books I've read that helped me a lot were: BLAST from O'Reilly. 
Centered around BLAST (obviously) it starts with a nice introduction on 
sequence alignments. But perhaps you can better read "An introduction 
Bioinformatics Algorithms" by Jones and Pevzner, very nice book 
describing many algorithms in a clear way. Check out the website

       Microsoft is not the answer,
       Microsoft is the question,
       NO is the answer
