Below are a few of the books I find to be helpful and reliable
information about the gluten free diet. Some are guides, and others are cookbooks. My favorite cookbook is the Bette Hagman "Gluten Free Gourmet Bakes Bread".
These are available on Amazon.com I recommend that you read the reviews there before deciding which is right for you.
While I am affiliated with Amazon, and this site would receive
a small commission for any purchase, the cost would not be
affected for you. Amazon is usually among the lowest priced.

Celiac Support Groups
This is my personal favorite gluten free cookbook for baking.
Her breads are very good. There is a great variety in this book for all types of baking. Rice flour recipes are very good. Save the bean flour recipes for after you've healed a bit though, as they can be uncomfortable with sore intestines.
Some ingredients may be more difficult to locate outside the U.S.
