My friend Eric Greene has his composites book available for download at no cost at
Its a little more technical than an in-the-trenches constructional manual. Where else can you find the various kinds of sizing in fiberglass?
I first met him at one of the MACM conferences in Melbourne, FL. Most of his work that I am familar with concerns performance of composites in fires. He does a lot more than that also. See http://www.ericgreeneassociates.com/
