IMHO Bergey's does not meet the criteria of non-complicated.  On the
other hand a good college-level microbiology text that does not focus
exclusively on medical micro, such as Brock et al. Biology of
Microorganisms or Atlas Microbiology has a longish chapter with short
outlines of these different groups.  Find the organism you want in the
index.  If that does not satisfy, then go to Bergey's or Balows The
Prokaryotes.
