very useful
Great descriptions of multiple routes for each peak and detailed TH directions. Together with SP and beta you can't go wrong!

Excellent resource
As rasgoat says, this book is fun just to read. It's spent a lot of time in my hallway "office." Seriously, though, it is detailed, well-written, and has excellent maps and diagrams. Novices and experts alike will find this guide indispensable. Sometimes, it's so good that it almost takes the fun out of the climb by making you feel the climb through it, but that changes quickly once you go.

It's all here. This is the book that all others on the subject will be measured against. Great descriptions, maps and photos.

THE Colorado 14ers guide book. It gives detailed instruction on most routes and GREAT TH directions. If you hike/climb in Colorado buy this! If you haven't all ready!

The 14er Bible
If you're going to climb a 14er buy this book. You won't need any other.

Great Book
Don't expect descriptions on different conditions- it assumes summer conditions for basically everything, and it is not that in depth at all in terms of technical climbs, but its otherwise a great guide to 14ers
