The FAA’s website contains a huge range of useful information, though finding your way round can be a challenge at times. Here are some direct links to commonly used documents:
FAA Glider Practical Test Standards (PTS)
FAA Glider Flying Handbook
Cumulus Soaring has perhaps, the most comprehensive range of gliding and soaring books (as well as soaring equipment).
Bob Wander’s site also has an excellent range of glider training books.
