Book recommendation

Any recommendations of nutrition books related to cycling or similar exercise?

I would like to learn a few things out of the book:

1) Learn what to look for in terms of types of ingredients and volume of sugars, vs. fibres, vs. fats etc so I can read a label and avoid things that may not be useful for what's needed for cycling

2) Understand what I need in terms of "fuel" (carbs, water, protein, electrolytes, etc.) for a given ride and how to determine this formula

3) List out types of common food that meet certain needs (complex carbs, balanced between carbs vs. protein vs. other) -- real food and bars/gels/sports drinks

4) Not as important, but easy recipes on making my own health snacks to bring with me on rides
