Literature About Hadith Sciences In English

Wa `alaykum as-Salam:

I recommend al-Hakim al-Naysaburi's obligatory manual for hadith scholars titled _Ma`rifat `Ulum al-Hadith_ ("Knowledge of the Hadith Sciences").
It was translated in full by the Rev. James Robson but is probably out of print so you can try libraries. Try also under the title _al-Iklil_ (the Diadem).
