If you are looking for books on celiac disease, cooking and healthy eating, this list will give you a good start. 

Over the years and in building this site I've read a variety of material.  Although there are some books that focus on celiac disease and gluten free foods specifically, I've broadened my reading to include an exploration of the food industry, auto-immune disease, cooking for health and other related material. 

Note that none of these books are made with wheat, rye or barley so they are all technically gluten free books ;) I hope you enjoy...
