Asset Allocation resources?

A few years ago I read a book that discusses AA and gave example AAs for different timelines and risk tolerance. Iíve based my AA off that book. Now I canít seem to remember the title. I want to revisit the ďwhyĒ of my selected AA to see if I want to change it up. I find that Iím for more aggressive than online calculators suggest I be. So I donít really want to use online calculators.
Books/website suggestions?

All About Asset Allocation by Ferri

The Intelligent Asset Allocator by Bernstein

And, my favorite resource, the Bogleheads Wiki.
If you push something hard enough, it will fall over ó Fudd's First Law of Opposition.

This one fits the description too.

And if I claim to be a wise man, it surely means that I don't know.

Larry Swedroe is another author to check out. He came up with the phrase "ability, need and willingness to take on risk" or something like that. His books like "The only guide to the Right Financial Plan " discuss this threesome in detail and help one decide for themselves how the driving forces behind their decisions should be weighted.
