I second the North Sails books. North U books and/or CD's on "Tactics" and "Trim" are both very good for the relative beginner and experienced sailor alike, because they emphasize the basics without going into mind-numbing detail about the theory behind the tactics. Even if you race regularly, they will remind you of things that you can do better.
