-Coastal Kayakers Manual, Washburne
-Sea Kayaking, A manual for long distance Touring, John Dowd
-Sea Kayaking, Derek Hutchinson

When I started paddling, Dowd and Hutch published about the only available books on the subject. Both very good and extensive, though some of Hutch's advice seems relevant to paddling in English rivers. Still, comprehensive and good material from the early master of the sport. The Coastal Kayakers Manual I found to cover the same information, but the explanations worked better for me. That is an individual preference, but all 3 books are quite good. I can't comment on ones I haven't read, so I can't comment on the book you listed.
