One more reference that I like is: 

Horton and Pease, Recombination and mutagenesis of DNA sequences using
PCR, PCR: A Practical Approach, IRL Press (1991), pp 217-247.

Bob is really too modest.  The terse references he listed are his own
work.  He's contributed a very important general method, gene SOEing, for
using PCR to manipulate DNA.  I think it's great he contributes to the
discussion on this newsgroup.

And hearty congratulations on that PhD, Bob!!
