You could take a look at "Advanced Digital Black & White Photography" by John Beardsworth. Amazon stock it.

- Yup John Beardy knows what he is talking about (his blog is pretty good too).

Though I think the key is to get some books of B&W photos, it really helps to know the effect you are after before you start moving those sliders.

P.S. Don't buy this book.
