A stand-out publication is the Kodak Professional Photoguide. I have the 5th ed. (1995) in the spiral bound (and more expensive version). It has an incredible amount of information crammed into 56 pages (6 x 8-1/2), including a gray card. One of the most useful pages discusses stop-action shutter speeds with a formula and a detailed table that takes into account the subject's speed (with lots of typical subjects), distance from the camera and direction (angle) of subject motion.
