Can anyone recommend a book for IFS?

I ran across a couple of different reads that someone recommended a certain book for IFS. I tried searching but no luck finding where they were. I'm looking for a "beginners" book for IFS and/or how to build.
(on road)
thanks

Herb Adams - 'Chassis engineering' is pretty good.

Agreed.
Also:
"How to make your car handle"
Put in the name Carroll Smith and pick up everything listed on Amazon.
When you are done with that pick up a copy of Milliken's "Race Car Vehicle Dynamics."

Agreed on the Herb Adams and Carroll Smith recommendations. The Herb Adams book has some good insight on actually building your suspension, but is a little light on theory. Carroll Smith has one of the best, most readable, descriptions of independent suspension geometry in "Tune to Win". All of his books are worth buying...they are among my most used resources, along with Ron Fournier's "Metal Fabricators Handbook".
