In my opinion, one of the all time BEST books on Ski tuning and maintenance is written by Seth Masia. The original version came out in the 1980's; he did an update for the 1990's; rumor has it that he is working on a 3rd update now.
It's called something like the a Handbook for Ski Maintenance and Repair - and it has incredibly useful (and well written) basics in it, accompanied by photos. A number of people used to say that it was the 'Bible' of ski tuning.
I think it's on Amazon. I also think Seth may have his own website with more information about the book or other resources; do a google search for "Seth Masia".
It taught me - and a lot of other people - everything we know about ski tuning.
