I would suggest Taz Tally's "Avoiding the Scanning Blues". Three hundred well-written 
pages, unlike so many manuals written in computerese.

There are no formulaic answers or directives, though. One of your primary challenges 
will be working to determine the limits and strengths of the scanner you have chosen. As 
Karl Marx said, the Tool defines the Man.
