Its from 96 and a little bit dated in some respects. but a good
book. The second edition is coming in a few months

Understanding GPS: Principles and Applications, Second Edition
ISBN 1-58053-894-0

Approx. 680 pages.

Another very good book is "Global Positioning System: Signals,
Measurements and Performance" by Misra & Enge. A second edition also
expected in December.

I have found www.navtechgps.com to have a good selection of GPS
related books.
