There aren't really any books published on PDA, but there is one due to be published in Sept, you can pre-order on amazon:
www.amazon.co.uk/Understanding-Pathological-Avoidance-Syndrome-Children/dp/1849050740/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1308507720&sr=1-1
I don't know if you have looked at the original bmj article by Elizabeth Newson: Pathological demand avoidance syndrome: a necessary distinction within the pervasive developmental disorders. You can read it here if you register (for free) adc.bmj.com/content/88/7/595.full?sid=155da131-bd2c-4aaf-b54b-6b74a4d89c00
There are also some good videos on youtube www.youtube.com/user/bluemillicent
