Hello Cesar,

I'm new to Acro (started for real this past fall), and read and suggest the following two books:

Basic Aerobatics, Geza Szurovy & Mike Goulian

Flight Unlimited, Eric Muller & Annette Carson.

I have actually been going back to these books after practicing, on a regular basis. 

There is also a link on the message board "Video: 2010" that will bring you to a web site with excellent video of an instructor flying a Decathlon through primary and sportsman routines.  I found these videos really helpfull.

Duane Cole's   ROLL AROUND A POINT  comes to the top of my mind.

Its been 30 years, give me a day to rummage through my library and I will have a list of the books I used.

Fly for Fun will be one to reccomend. .....you can get the book at the EAA/IAC merchandise section among many other books...

do you know where are you going to train and which type of aircraft?

Aerobatics by Neil Williams although dated, is a great, great read, particularly if you are flying a basic trainer like a Citabria or 150.
