Any good books on the history of EC Comics?

Does anyone know of a good book detailing the history of EC Comics? I'm interested in reading more about the seduction of the innocent hearings and more about Gaines himself.

"Tales of Terror! The EC Companion" by Grant Geissman and Fred von Bernewitz (co-published by Fantagraphics and Gemstone) is a very good one.

It seems to be out of print.
