"Time Crunched Cyclist" by Chris Carmichael, it's a fairly quick and dirty way to jump right into to getting yourself training in a structured manner. He takes a very aggressive approach in the book with a lot of very high intensity intervals which is one of the best ways to maximize performance for time if you don't have much time. "Time Crunched" is considered 8-10 hours.
"Racing and Training with a Power Meter" by Andy Coggan and Hunter Allen. It's everything and a whole lot more that you would want to know about training with a power meter. It's intense and there's tons of information in it. Not real useful if you don't have a power meter unless you want to know about the capabilities of training with one. I need to re-read it soon as the first time I read it a lot of the information was over my head and I got complete information overload.
"The Cyclist Training Bible" by Joe Friel is one of the best books I've read about a complete guide to training. He doesn't do the best job of spelling out a training plan like "Time Crunched Cyclist" but gives you tons of tools to doing your own. He also does a lot of explaining of why some things are done while some others aren't. Biggest take away I think was that intervals make you faster and endurance rides get you into shape and you'll spend much, much more time in the aerobic ranges than in the anaerobic training ranges.
"Muscle Chow" by Greg Avedon is one I'm currently working through and I'm pretty happy with it so far. It's more or less written for people looking to eat for good physique, think male model or the like. The information is still relevant since we have a lot of the same demands and maybe more demand for high protein than power athletes due to muscle cannibalization. It has a lot of good recipes and a guide of how one should eat in way that is very much like an 8-week training plan. It's supposed to help keep the eating practical without the "hard diet" many of us try to do at certain points of the year to lose weight or gain weight or whatever. He proposes the cyclic manner helps remove the idea of dieting and just eating smart just like training smart which many have figured out.
"Cyclocross: Training and Technique" by Simon Burney is a great resource for cyclocross. There's less about training plans in it than the Joe Friel book but it does a very reasonable job if you are struggling to put something together as there is a sample plan laid out. He suggests what skills you should know and how to train for those. It's more focused on the skill set I think than the fitness aspect. It's probably a little dated now that disc brakes have become main stream as far as the equipment section but everything else should still be relevant.
If you're looking to get something for training the Joe Friel book is highly regarded. Reading can get a little dry as it has huge amounts of information but I found it pretty easy to skip around a little instead of reading cover to cover. Carmichael's book was probably the easiest to read and much quicker if you want to get right into something. The plan works well for shorter events, under 2 or 3 hours. My CX training is pretty close to that model in retrospect (had a coach for CX this season so I didn't plan any training this season).
