Default Texture and lighting BOOK?

Anyone have any good suggestions on a good texture and lighting book. I know there is one that is actually called "advanced texture and lighting" but I wasn't real impressed. If you have a good book recommendation please share. thanks

Digital Texturing and Painting is a good one. I dont know if its still about though, but its one of those books to have. The author is Owen Demers.

Also try Digital Lighting and Rendering by Pixar TD Jeremy Birn...quality stuff from Basics to advanced.

thanks, Any suggestion on good uv layout techniques...I know there really is no"easy button" but I swear I have the hardest time with UV layout and I imagine I am not going about it correctly or I am missing some work flow technique.
thanks

UV's are a lot of experimentation and planning in my mind. You could also use somehting like Roadkill to speed up the process.
