So, the camera assistants have The Camera Assistant's Manual by Elkins, and The Camera Assistant: A Complete Professional Handbook by Hart; the gaffers and electrics have the Set Lighting Technician's Handbook by Box; and DPs have about a million books.

Is there any "bible" for grips?

Michael Uva wrote some books about grip and grips. It has some great tips and tricks.

Uva's grip book is great. His rigging book isn't in quite the same format. Lots of useful technical information, dimensions and specsifications, but very few application examples.
