Try hitting the library or second hand stores for low carb books. The one thing I would say about the newer Atkins books or sites is that they promote their food products which for almost everyone is not a good thing.
I read a Gary Taubes article which lead me to his books which were very informative. I too think Bowden's book gives a good overview of options.
As far as cookbooks I've really enjoyed Dana Carpender (yes, spelled that way) books. Although she has evolved over time to a cleaner version of lc. For example moving away from artificial sweeteners to stevia and others.
I'm in the category of needing to watch calories along with carbs. I've found high fat, low carb, lower protein, lower calories to work for me. Once you get a handle on the foundation concepts you may need to tweak your own plan a bit. Each of us has items that may not work for them such as no fruit, no nuts, no dairy. May either increase cravings or stall weight loss.
