How to build a bike book?

Any recommendations? I'm a noob trapped on a island (really). I want to build my own LHT and it's turning out to be harder than I thought.

I know it's a repair book but "The Big Blue Book Of Bicycle Repair" by Park Tools looks great. Any others?

Any good book will work for you. I have heard good things about the Park book.

I have both the Zinn and Bicycling Magazine books and they are both OK.

Part selection would be the hard part (proper fits etc) once that's done, the actual assempbly will be pretty easy (with a few touchy parts like derailleur alignment)
