Advice: Books on Sail Trim for Ketches?

Does anyone have any recommendations for books, sites, etc. that go into detail about sail trim and handling of a ketch rig?

i learned by doing. iseasy. wind will tell you what to use. practice--you willKNOW when there is too much sail out. and you won t move fast at all with too little. too little is good for big winds, a formosa 41 will move 4 kts in a `5 kt breeze on jib and jigger.
