U. S. Paper Money Guide and Handbook, by Carlson R. Chambliss, is a good book, with lots of background information and collector experience and knowledge that you wouldn't find in catalogues.  Hard Cover, BNR Press, 1999, 480 pages which includes some advertising.

There is a chapter devoted to FRN's (Ch. 4) but since it was published 5 years ago, it won't include the latest issues.
