If you're new to grasses and want a primer to get a handle on the basic anatomy and structure I would strongly recommend you get Chase's A First Book of Grasses, which remains a little classic. It uses a top down approach, giving you the concepts of the genera from the standpoint of the grass spikelet being a reduced, leafy, flowering branch. From there it starts with the simplest spikelets that have remained relatively unchanged and proceeds to the grasses that have diverged the most from the original, basic plan and are often more specialized. If you combine Chase and Hitchcock's books you'll have the best of both approaches.
