Wooden kayak building book...suggestions requested. :)

I was blundering through a local bookstore the other day and came across
a book on building wooden kayaks.  I thought about buying it, but
thought I would first ask:

Has anyone had experience with any particular book on that topic that
they thought was especially good?

Thanks!

There is a wood kayak building book with the instructions for building
three kayaks written by Chris Kulczycki, who runs Chesapeake Light Craft
(sells plans and kits) titled The Kayak Shop.  The book explains in simple
terms the design of wood kayaks and how to build them using epoxy and
wood.  I am building one of his kits now and he knows what he is doing.
