I'm also buying 1-2-3 Magic: Effective Discipline for Children 2-12 at Lis' suggestion.
And I need a potty training book. For me, not for him. Suggestions of books or online reading welcome. I don't promise to use your proven method (every kid is different, whether you'd like to acknowledge that or not, so not all solutions are appropriate for all kids). I have no interest in potty training this kid right now. But he's practically begging to use the potty so I can't put it off any longer.
