I am not sure whether you are making a distinction between a book and a
manual.  Books are easy to read and understand (often incomplete), but
manuals require more effort (and complete).  Books are for newcomers and
manuals for regular and expert users.

Have you looked at the Emacs project page:

Here is a page of recent manuals.

If you follow the links there, you will be led to a page which contains
manual in a PDF page which you can download and print.

Ofcourse, they are manuals except for "An Introduction to Programming in
Emacs Lisp" which I would call as a book.


It would be nice if a book of Emacs be written available free of charge
for everyone to use.
