Useful books:
The Yosemite Handbook : An Insider's Guide to the Park - this is our old standby by Phil Frank. It's basically a big FAQ covering a variety of topics.
Hiking Yosemite National Park - A Falcon Guide. Really nice, includes detailed maps including what happens with the elevation. My one problem with this book is that either the author is very tough or thinks she has something to prove or something because she rates hikes as easy that other writers rate much higher. Ignore the ratings and look at the distance/elevation and make your own judgement.

Frankly the way I do it is to look at the short descriptions in the first book, use his ratings and recommendations, but then turn to the second book for maps and details.
