I used to have quite a few Hypercard books, but by far the best was 
Michael Swaine´s Dr. Dobb's Essential Hypertalk Handbook, at least for 
intermediate/advanced programmers. The best seller was Danny Goodman´s 
book, but most of its content was a language reference (which is always 
more convenient online than on paper). Swaine´s was shorter, but went 
much deeper.
