I like Charlie Cravens book as he explains, with pictures illustrating each step. He begins the book with the techniques of tying on thread, the use of dubbing, etc.

I have to agree, these are great books with great instructions, Later on I would get the bench side reference though. Can't say enough about Skip Morris and Kaufman books. Spent the last week thumbing through them and am still learning new things and brushing up on some other techniques.
