The best summary short of lots of peer-reviewed papers.,

This review is from: Texturing and Modeling: A Procedural Approach (Hardcover)
The first edition was outstanding for the sheer breadth of its coverage of ways of producing natural-appearing textures via computation. Coupled with an easy-to-read prose style and good examples and color plates, it'll make you think of ways of doing apparently unrelated things you'd never have thought of otherwise. I only got a glimpse of the second edition, but this has been a busy field the last five years, and I fully expect the second edition to be as useful and interesting as the first.
