did you check amazon website by searching there for iptables? Google is also your friend.

This one is pretty good. Also look at the links at the bottom for other Linux Firewall books.

and, in case you didn't really want to buy a book, but wanted something you could look through at your leisure as a .pdf or print out (and, because I've never answered a LQ question with an answer that can be sung to the Robin Hood theme before) and, as you said, in depth:

has a manual!
has a manual!

After that, a search on 'iptables' and 'tutorial' will give you some good hits too.

If you are looking for a dead-tree version of an iptables book, I would suggest Linux Firewalls.
