Default Lagering book

My friend who started me into brewing began with Lagers. After three batches together, I am gonna go it alone. Of course most of what I read suggests starting with ales, I want to stick with what I have already learned.

Though what I read in forums is helpful, I am looking for a Book on Lagering. Most of the books I have found have only about three pages on Lagering techniques and 600 recipes...

I am looking for something with substantial lager info. Also, my friend uses Krausening for priming. Again, from what I gathered, this too is an advanced technique.

Any suggestions on reading material in these areas are appreciated.

Greg Noonan (who just recently passed away) wrote THE book on lagers. New Brewing Lager Beer is the updated version.

I don't think krausening is a particularly advanced technique, but it's probably true that most lager brewers don't do it.

Kaiser has many posts on German brewing techniques and that is how I learned about krausening. A great source of info: http://braukaiser.com/wiki/index.php?title=Main_Page
