Hope this is the right area to be posting it in.


I've checked out Tai Chow's book with the same title from my school library. There was a pretty brutal Amazon review on it, but overall I find it helpful. Does anyone have suggestions on better reference guides?

I am not familiar Tai Chow's book but based on the table of contents, a better book at around the same level would be Boas.

I've only borrowed it from my library and read sections, but its pretty good. I'm going to buy it soon.

This is a good book (I own a copy), but it's not the type of book for which the original poster is looking.
