Shark/Tuna Fishing Book?

Any and All,

I have a particularly generous and adventurous cousin with a 42 foot fishing boat. He recently purchased this monster vessel and he has not yet had a chance to head out for a single shark and/or tuna fishing excursion. I want to help him prepare for such a trip next year and I am looking for a book that explains and outlines the gear, fishing strategies and the location (preferably for New England) that will best suit a bunch of virgin shark and tuna fisherman that are heading out on a virgin bluewater voyage.

Any suggestions? Any shark or tuna veterans that would like to come along and show us how it is done?

Any good books on taking shark and tuna on the fly? Do I need a 12 weight rod or something a little more burly?
