What are the Best Calorie Counter Chart Books?

I just came across two calorie counter chart books: 

They were the “The Diet Detectives Count Down” and “The Biggest Loser - Complete Calorie Counter.” 

The calorie counter books that I own are much older (20 to 40 yrs old), but they are not out of date. Apples, oranges, celery all still have about the same number of calories.  I also have the weight watchers point calculators, but these have changed a bit and one has to input calories into the calculator to come up with points.  It really does not make much difference which book you choose, there are a lot of good resource books. I will say that I prefer the “Biggest Loser - Complete Calorie Counter.”  This book is smaller and would be easier to take with you.  About half of the “Diet Detectives Count Down” is spent telling one how long it would take to burn off the calories in the food.  This can be important, but I feel that most people can calculate this fairly quickly, and every one burns calories at a different rate. ( The person that weighs more will burn off more calories while walking the same distance for example.)
