Default Best Winemaking Book?

My wife and I have been interested in making our own wine for a while now, and I was wondering what everyone's opinions are about what the best what the best winemaking book is.

Thanks for your help.

there are lots of free PDFs out there but if you want a really good book, get "the joy of home winemaking"
by Terry Garey. ISBN 0-380-78227-8
It's easy to follow, lots of recipes, over all a really good book.

Ha! That's the only winemaking book I have and I enjoy it. I expect there is much more out there though. I ended up overloading on sugar with a recent batch of Nanking Cherry wine following the 'Pie Cherry Wine' recipe in the book, but it's happily bubbling away right now - thanks to help from this forum. I will enjoy seeing what else is recommended.
