I doubt there's really a book available. There are only a handful of rules to follow with creating html for an html email in DW.
1. Use css sparingly. External css files won't work in most email clients and <head> tags are stripped in others, so embedded css isn't something to rely on either. If you need to use css and don't mind some email clients not seeing it, you can use inline styles.
2. Because css is unreliable, using old fashioned table layouts is the norm.
3. Absolute links only. This goes for links to images and files. Relative links wouldn't work unless a user were to download a zip file contining all of your images and pages, then open it. That's just never going to happen, so you need to link all of your images to files you've uploaded to a server somewhere.
4. Due to spam filtering software, be careful of using an image based layout without a large block of html text. Make sure you use alt attributes for your images in case they are not downloaded initially by your recipient's email client.
5. Keep it small, width wise. Most people do not open their email application full screen. Scrolling left to right is annoying. Staying around 600px or so (IMHO) helps keep that from happening to your recipients.
6. Don't email 1000's of people yourself. Use a service like http://www.iContact.com or another similar mass email service provider. It's very easy to set off corporate level spam filters if you use your personal email to send out a mass newsletter or marketing piece and it really sucks to be blocked by yahoo, hotmail or gmail at your personal address.

The MC resources do contain examples in them. They don't teach you how to code HTML tables, they assume that part of the knowledge comes elsewhere. What they aim to teach you is how to take your knowledge of HTML and CSS and focus it on creating emails. Do you feel comfortable with HTML & CSS or is that more of what you are looking for?
