+1 on the book.

Power meter is very handy for indoor cycling because it's hard to calibrate your effort on a trainer. You can use heart rate, but that tends to skew with heat training indoors.

Its fairly easy to con yourself about how hard you're working on a trainer. Power meter prevents that.

That said, I'd only buy a power meter if you're dedicated to following a structured training program.
