For a physical scientist with limited training in statistics, B. Everitt's "Cluster Analysis" (Halsted Press, 2nd ed. 1980, 3rd ed. circa 1994) was a terrific overview, and adequete to help me choose clustering routines from various libraries. To write your own code, however, you would may need something more complete on particular algorithms.
