The new book by Charlotte Speight " Make It In Clay : A Beginner's Guide to
Ceramics "promises to be a good one though I haven't yet seen it. It has not
yet been published. It is tentatively scheduled for a Feb-March release date.

"Syllabus For Advanced Ceramics" and "Syllabus For Beginning Ceramics" by
Carlton Ball were both published by Keramos Books but they have been defunct
for some time. The books were picked up, I think by a west coast ceramics
supplier and published for a while though I haven't heard anything about them
for some time now. They may or may not be still available. I do have a few
remaining copies of the beginning ceramics book for sale.
