Wood Framed Shear Wall Construction: An Illustrated Guide by Thor Matteson. A book on wood diaphragms would also be useful: The ICC book, "Guide to the Design of Diaphragms, Chords and Collectors" would be a good place to start. I like this one because it helps bridge the gap between what is designed and what is constructed. It shows a lot of pictures from the field and explains what is good or bad about what we see in this picture. This book doesn't exclusively deal with wood diaphragms, but it is a good place to start.

Cordantrius
An excellent book. Also, see my review on his award winning second book, "Earthquake Strengthening for Vulnerable Homes"

UPDATE:
I received this book today from the ICC (finally) 14 days and an email; but they did a free 2-day shipping for their mistake/long processing.
This book is great. I balked at buying it at first, it seemed pricey, but it's worth it believe me. I wish they sold it on Amazon (for the real price not $100)... I got the IRC in 2 days from Amazon.

That said, if it saves you a couple Hold Downs, it has more than paid for itself.
This book is great, it explains shear walls both "theoretically" (easy to find) but more importantly it gives "Real Life Examples" and "Field Problems" (impossible to find) showing typical installations in S. California.

If I had this book a couple months ago, I could have saved myself several headaches, and some money. Retrofit Simpson E22 + Hold-down + 16" anchor bolt is like $50; not to mention you have to have a hammer drill ($300), bit ($30), rebar cutting bit ($50) etc. (although the epoxy should fill a couple holes).

While you probably have the tools, you don't want to make a bunch of $50 mistakes all over and have to put in more hold downs. Not to mentions hours of time and ruining a $30 hammer drill bit is always possible.

Doing the right the first time is much easier.

O.G Review:
I have not yet purchased or receive this book, but I did find that the sellers on Amazon are gouging you.

That should be apparent when the USED book is more than the NEW book, but even the NEW books are almost three times as expensive as from the International Code Council.

The book ID is 4020S on the ICC website, and additionally the publisher has a website.

Your welcome.

Update: Well I decided to buy it. It came out to like $53 or somesuch after shipping and tax. I'll tell you if it's any good when I receive it.

It did get good reviews by the Journal of Light Construction, so that is promising.
