Santa was good to me in leaving a copy of a recently published book by one of the contributors to this list: Les McLean.

Creative B/W Photography does the job for those of us who don't have all the answers to exposure and printing and are continuelly looking for something that will let us grow more in our understanding of pre-visualization, exposure, processing and printing. For anyone like me who tends to get lost examining the trees in the Forest of Confusion, Les's book is a great help in weaving our way through that Forest.

It's well worth a read.
