There isn't, as far as I know. "The book" is the Guidelines, really. But
I do agree with you that there is a need for this, and I think if we
could get it together -- maybe in the form of a 200-300-page volume
covering all the basics with lots of examples -- then selling it through
Lulu might bring in a bit of revenue, and also make a good follow-up for
people who have done short encoding courses.
