Text animation in depth

I have done AE for many years and done lots of text animations but I will be honest and say I really don't fully understand many parts of the interface. It seems that every tutorial does a light overview but never gets into an in-depth granular breakdown of the controls.
Does anyone have a recommendation of a tutorial or book that gives a complete explanation of text animation. Thanks in advance to all the great contributors on CC!

When I was starting out, everyone recommended Chris and Trish Meyer's book: Creating Motion Graphics:

I couldn't get hold of a copy, but I did get Creative After Effects by Angie Taylor:

Neither deal exclusively with text effects, but give a good grounding in the concepts of animation, motion graphics, key framing and design. - Free FX for amateur films - FX blog
