Outside of the normal CrossFit Main Site, Forum, etc. What are Your favor resources for more information?

I scour the net constantly but I am sure I am still missing some good sites. And I am also very interested in any actual coaching books people have found helpful. Mist of the books I see are poorly written, so I want to make sure if I spend the coin that it is worth it!

What, specifically, are you looking for? "More information" is a pretty wide net to cast...

What are the differences between versions? Are they worth tracking down, or is the most recent edition just fine?

I know that they have added bits and pieces over the versions here and there. If I were looking for it I would look for the latest which I think is 6th.
