There won't be a whole book on sysctl anytime soon--it would be about 14 pages, including title, copyright, TOC, and index. The actual parameters have changed dramatically over time, not only in availability, but also in interpretation. A setting that's valid in a 2.4 kernel might be gone in 2.6, or might have a different set of valid values.
