Sailing Fundamentals is OK but was subject to some criticism, and as a response ASA came out with Sailing Made Easy. So the latter is the latest, greatest ASA101 book and is supposed to be a considerable improvement on the old course book.

The biggest criticism I would have concerning Sailing Fundamentals is that it mixes 101 and 103 content and it is seldom clear which material applies to which standard.

If you want a sort of simple summary of everything, the course notes I got from the sailing school take some beating.
