Focus Groups methodology literature

I am working on a mulitdisciplinary project focused on environmental behaviour and attitudes towards protected areas and we need literature about focus groups that would be accesible and clear for researchers of various backgrounds (sociology, social psychology, environmental economy). What would you recommend?

I am so sorry, I have misspelled the surname. It is Krueger, not Kreuger.

I will shameless recommend my own book, Basic and Advanced Focus Groups, from Sage. Each chapter begins with a more basic (introductory) discussion of a key topic, which is followed by an optional presentation of more advanced issues.

Despite the title, here is a general introductory article, found also in researchgate Focus group research: what is it and how can it be used?

Are these of any assistance?:

There you have it, I was going to recommend Kreuger's and Morgan's work as an answer that is perhaps a cliché given their notoriety, but someone beat me to it :).
