I have the Park book. It's useful, but not terribly helpful. The book seems to have been written by an expert. Instructional books are best written by a novice with the help of an expert. The difference is both subtle and dramatic.

The best book may be no book!
I prefer books, myself. "Zinn and the Art of _____ Bike Maintenance" are my personal favorites. I also supplement with Park Tool's site and book, Bicycling Magazine's book (almost as good as the Zinns), and Sheldon Brown.
I have Barnett's Manual in PDF format on my computer, but I have yet to need it.
