In addition to Andrew's list (some of which, as a consequence, I have since purchased or already have in my collection).

During the course of a recent forum discussion the author Paul Harcourt Davies was mentioned.

I purchased the following books and found them to be insightful and of benefit for macro and close-up photographers in the beginner to intermedate level. Although, many of the setups and techniques displayed in the book are rather familiar and used by some of the more 'seasoned' photographers on this forum.

The first book listed below also explains some of the the fundamental differences between Medium Format, 35mm SLRs and Digital DSLRs when dealing with macro and close-up photography.

Small Things Big by Paul Harcourt Davies
(ISBN 0715316885) Publish date: 2003.

Digital Close-up and Macro Photography Q&A by Paul Harcourt Davies
(ISBN 13:978-1-60059-899-9) Publish Date (this edition) 2012

Various online articles by the author are also available.
One example:
