Either the Lonnie Bird or Mark Dujinski (Spelling?) will be good references. Woodcraft has both on the shelf.

Are you looking more for content about projects or setup and technique?

What about a book on how to make band-saw boxes? The video mentioned covers set up just fine.

Ditto on the Amazon recommendation. I bought one used. Buying used books on Amazon is the best bang for the buck.

I agree with gfadvm and distrbd, I got a lot of my books at local second hand book store, and the rest
from Amazon.
