Resume Ideas

Where can I find great examples of resumes / cv's? I will be pursuing a new job in the next 6 months and would like to polish up my resume now. I think my resume is pretty good, but I would like to look at some different approaches to brainstorm how I may tighten it up. I am a I.T. project manager if that helps. My Google-Fu is turning up sites with resumes templates that are, ummmm, a lot worse than my existing resume. Any general tips would be much appreciated as well, but I am more interested in format, structure, and wording. Help me find example resumes that jump off a recruiter's desk!

At least I was paid for a week's worth of work.

My name is listed in the acknowledgment section of a science protocols book where the authors thank me for assistance and advice. The sections that I wrote ended up being reduced to a few sentences, and I was not listed as an author despite a promise of inclusion. Would it be appropriate to include that on my otherwise skimpy CV, or would that be considered tacky?
