Boas in Captivity by Vin Russo
Boas in Captivity was written to help educate herpetoculturists and hobbyists about the natural history of Boa constrictor and also their captive care including housing, feeding, health issues, breeding, and raising of healthy young boas. The fascinating color morphs and pattern anomalies that occur are presented in text and beautiful photos in the Photo Gallery.
Boa constrictors are indigenous to Central America and South America. These complex snakes have the largest geographic range of any reptile on Earth, spanning two continents from the Sonoran Desert in Mexico to Argentina, South America comprising a geographic range of over 6 million square miles. Their habitats range from lowland desert oasis to mountainous rainforest.
Vin Russo has been keeping snakes since he was a small boy. In recent years, he has revealed himself as one of the top boa breeders in the world with a collection that includes some of the most amazing color morphs and pattern anomalies seen anywhere. Vin presents in Boas in Captivity everything a keeper will need to know to properly house and care for these amazing reptile pets.

It's a good read and is more on the basics. I think he has another book more in depth on breeding and such. Gives good detail on the subspecies. I would recommend boa keepers to read this whether you plan to breed or keep as pets.
