Repair Book Suggestions

I am in the market for a comprehensive repair book and have been slogging through reviews of bicycling mag's book, zinn's and the park tools book. barnett's seem the best but is a bit out of my price range currently.

i mostly work on vintage steel frame road bikes and the occasional commuter for a friend, any recommendations would be great. from my understanding the bicycling mag book is more general so i think that the zinn book on road bikes might do me better...

The Zinn book covers most every thing. If you want a vintage book then Glenn's complete book is a good read.
