Under books, I would add:

Mount Whitney Complete Trailhead to Summit Guide, Paul Richins Jr

Climbing Mt. Whitney, Peter Croft

One Best Hike: Mount Whitney, Elizabeth Wenk

Mount Whitney: Mountain Lore from the Whitney Portal

All these books have some sections on preparation and safety, apart from helpful explanations of the routes.

I personally have only read parts of Richins, and the route descriptions were better than some youtube videos.
