Where can I find a good book on the preparation and cooking of ramen in English?

My brother has some dreams of opening a ramen restaurant. He found a great book all about ramen on his recent trip to visit me, but, of course, it was all in Japanese, and his Japanese reading skills are not the best. I'd like to get him a book in English on the subject for Christmas.
I've done some searching for books on ramen on Amazon and the like, but most of what's turning up are goofy cookbooks for college students on a budget and things that don't get as deep into the subject as I'd like. Anyone know anything with lots of good information on making your own noodles and broth from scratch, and maybe some history thrown in?
