I think that they're really quite good, so good that I've had them checked
out of the library for three years now. :-) They were published by
Digital Press in 83/84 and cover RT-11 5.0. They're a little on the basic
side (especially Working), but I found them shortly after I pulled my
first PDPs out of the dumpster and they were an invaluable introduction to
the DEC way of doing things.

I just did a search in OCLC, the big library union catalog, and it appears
that these are the only real books on RT-11, although I did stumble
accross some interesting looking theses and tech reports that I might have
to track down now. And has anybody ever seen "A tutorial for using the
TERAK/RT-11" by Robert L. Smith?
