New GPS/WAAS Approaches

I'm curious if anybody out there knows of a good, practical guide to GPS approaches.

Specifically, I am interested in some of the newer GPS approaches (LPV, LNAV/VNAV) that are being certified with WAAS.

When I received my instrument instruction GPS approaches were new and mostly consisted of overlays of current, ground based navigation aids. None of the equipment in the aircraft at that time were approved for approaches.

If there is a text, on-line course, or a speaker that you found informative and helpful, I would like to hear about it.

Thanks for the info.
