I like a book by Schaums. (This is a company that publishes do-it-yourself
type books on subjects taught at college). I only needed the first couple of chapters
to figure out how to setup accounts and move money between them to handle
my personal finances. There are other chapters on receivables and other things
that I don't have to worry about.

I went through the usual large bookstore chains (B&N, Borders) and after
flipping through everything they had, bought a few other books that turned 
out to be useless.
