Good book on roofing?

Is there a good book on roofing available? I need a book that includes info on tear off, replacing sheeting, fascia board, flashing, and comp shingles. I looked at books at Home Depot but they are more of a gloss over then a detailed how to. If there is no book is there any detailed how to on line?
