Oil, acrylic Techniques easily translated for gouache

Iíve been wanting to buy books on gouache Techniques, but there arenít many available that are exclusive to gouache. I was thinking I could get a book on another media, then adhere those techniques to gouache. I use watercolor and find that unless used watered down in a transparent method, gouache doesnít behave in any way like watercolor. I want to use it opaquely, so any book on watercolor isnít really going to benefit me.

So my question is what other painting media does gouache (not acrylic gouache) mostly resemble in regards to the way it handles. What other mediasí techniques are the easiest to translate over to gouache. Could I buy a book on say oil painting and just ďpretendĒ itís for gouache.

There is a book called Watermedia Painting with Stephen Quiller: The Complete Guide to Working in Watercolor, Acrylics, Gouache, and Casein
Does anybody know if the contents on gouache are of substance? Most times gouache is just a footnote, even in books which state itís name in the title.

Any advice would be most welcomed, thanks, Priscella
