This one seems to highly rated: http://www.harley.com/emacs/

I normally do not suggest anything that I have not read but this one
seems different.  (I have Stallman's book bur never read it.  I also
bought an O'Reilly book but never read it.  Life just got in the way.
With me, there is always the point reached when I decide to build a
tool to save future hassle.  Unfortunately, I have a high tolerance
for hassle.)
