I have the Insulin Resistance Diet which is about balancing all your carbs with the correct amount of protein. It does have quite a bit of PCOS info in it, although I'm not sure how up to date it is now. I know I bought the book before my youngest was born and he is about to turn 9! I did try that diet for a while, but honestly I found it simpler to just count carbs and/or do low carb. I still keep to the theory that if I am going to have sugary carbs, I should have some protein along with it, though. I really do think that helps prevent a huge spike in insulin and/or blood sugar.

I have the IR diet book too and found the plan very good (and it worked!) though it's not aimed at PCOS specifically. I tried another couple of books that were more PCOS focused but they were difficult to read and I found a lot of them were a waste of money. The Colette Harris book gets good reviews online but it wasn't great for me.

Back in the game and in it to win it!

The Blood Sugar Solution by Dr Hyman. I got the recipe book from the library yesterday. Similar to the IR diet but even lower in carbs. Specifically geared to folks with diabetes or IR.
