While it's not exactly a how-to book, Edible Estates ($17) does give you an intimate look at eight prototype gardens installed across the country, as well as insight and personal accounts from folks who have already made the leap themselves. Sure, it might be against your HOA guidelines, but when has that stopped you before?
