What Book for Expedition - H5000 Polar Generation & Calibration?

Last year I took the North U Expedition 101 webinar by Peter Isler.  It was an excellent course that exposed me to a number of great features in Expedition and how to do some basic setup, routing and displaying Expedition data on my B&G displays.  

I am interested in going further using strip charts to improve polars and develop polars for my Code 0 since I don't have any for it.  I also want to improve / fine tune sensor calibration.

Is there a book or online resource recommended that covers these topics? I prefer to purchase something I can "keep" and refer to afterwards as a refresher.  Unfortunately the North U webinars only have a 1 year period where you can go back and review information in the course modules.

Thanks Sparky.  I just emailed Will to find out which of his books covers the desired topic.

Just a follow up - I emailed Will Oxley and he sent me some additional resources.  I also purchased his Modern Race Navigation book on Kindle.  

An additional resource available from North U is the Expedition 101 webinar conducted by Peter Isler.  I found that since I purchased this last year I can still view it on my Android phone.  A more descriptive index for the webinar contents is pasted below for anyone interested.  Peter does a really good job explaining the details for each of these areas.

Hi,
The webinars from Peter Isler and Campbell are very good. I have also started posting some videos to complement the books. You can find them at www.willoxley.com I've got two more outlines for videos in front of me I am working on now. Cheers, Will.
