Also worth checking out "Dean's book":


This makes a great introductory text/prerequisite for the heavy hitters like
Gardner and Rohde.  Dean Banerjee spent many years providing customer
support for PLL chips sold by TI and NatSemi, so he's got a good sense of
how to explain the basics to non-specialists as well as encyclopedic
knowledge of things to watch out for.
