The best book by far I've used for growing lettuces and other greens is
another book by Joy Larkcom, The Salad Garden.  You won't find iceberg in
these pages!  Covering the more unusual salad mixes market gardeners grow,
she goes into depth, explaining types of greens, cultural practices, best
ways to harvest, and recipes.  Included are a couple of sections on a few
veggies, herbs and flowers that are usually eaten in salads.  The best page
is 158, listing various mixtures you can create, incorporating different
flavors, separated by the growing seasons.   Hope this helps!
