There's also the following one, reviewed in the latest issue of _Language 
and Society_:

Anthony J. Liddicoat, An introduction to conversation analysis. London & 
New York: Continuum, 2007. Pp. 333. Pb $39.95, Hb $150 Reviewed by Tyler 

I am not a conversation or discourse analyst, so can say nothing about the 
book, but the review is available online now. Of course, since it's a new 
book, the price may prove prohibitive anyway.
