Another vote for North U. The sail trim, and tactics books are on my xmas list. I spend a lot of my free time away from the computer (b/c I site behind one all day) so as cool as the CD sounds, I'd rather be able to take my book(s) anywhere. I've seen the North U sail trim in person, not a lot of 'extra' stuff to distract you. It's very serious about sail trim.

For sail trim alone, I'd recommend starting-out with Ivar Dedekam's Sail and Rig Tuning. Maybe I'm slow, or maybe it was because I was new to sailing, but it took me basically an entire season just to integrate what that book was trying to teach me about sail trim with real-life sailing.
