Title: Good Reference Book for Prestressed Concrete Design
If you are looking for an analysis text, there is none better than "Design of Prestressed Concrete Structures" by T.Y. Lin and Ned Burns.  Excellent theory, analysis methods, and good practical information and limitations.  T.Y. Lin is a design engineer first and foremost and it shows throughout the text.
 
Also PTI has a publication on "Design Fundamentals for Prestressed Concrete Floors" by Bijan Aalami that is well done.

Subject: Good Reference Book for Prestressed Concrete Design

I've searched through the archives but have seen no history of this question being asked.  Anybody have a recommendation regarding a good, practical prestress concrete design book ?  I have the PCI Design Handbook (5th ed.) and I am looking for a "companion" reference.

Thanks in advance.
