There's another book on moisture from the Canadian Mortgage and Housing
Corp called "Moisture in Atlantic Housing." It's doesn't have the
detailed contruction drawings of Lstiburek and Cormody, but it covers all
sorts of problems in existing homes and new construction. Both these
books can be seen in the Iris Catalog:

Happy Reading.
