I'm trying to find some good reference material. I did a search on Amazon.com, and it came up with a bunch of books. These are some that appeared better, but that is only based on the editor's synopsis. Does anyone know if any of em are any good or can reccomend any of the other ones? and where do you look for all your information?

Was just looking through this collection. Has some dead links so just a little patience.

Orson Scott Card seems to be highly rated. He writes a tidbit on the back of Jordan's books. He's one numerous awards from what I've read on a few sites. I've seen that book you mention of his recommended by publishers etc.
