Rescue & WW instructional books

Besides actual courses and time on the water which have merit well beyond any reading one can do, what are folks favorite instructional books for rescue and technical knowledge for ww rafting?

At $2,795.00 I think I'll pass...

In all seriousness I've found the Whitewater Rescue Manual written by Charlie Walbridge to cover all the essentials in an easily digestible format. It's a bit dated but I don't remember anything in there contrary to current instruction.
