One suggestion for a secondary text:  The ACGIH TLV and BEI book (or is it booklet?).   The introductory sections on the development process and the introductions and appendices to the TLVs and BEIs themselves contain a wealth of information in a condensed form.  And it's of course a handy, almost-pocket-sized reference for the TLVs themselves.
