The top answer is good. In case it helps, here's a description in terms of your phonebook analogy. Real networking terms in parentheses.

Based on their home addressname (IP address) you know they live in your neighborhood (broadcast domain). First you look in your phonebook (ARP cache) to see if you already know their address (MAC address). If they're not in the phonebook, you go outside and shout (broadcast), “Where does Steve live?” loud enough for everyone to hear (ARP request). Assuming Steve does in fact live there and he's awake, he replies—just to you, not shouting—“Here's my address” (ARP reply). You write it down in your phonebook for future reference (ARP caching).
