I highly recommend "Contemporary Warm Glass: A Guide to Fusing,
Slumping & Kiln-Forming Techniques" by Brad Walker. You can buy it
on Amazon or order it directly from the author at www.warmglass.com.
It is the book that we used to learn how to fuse glass and is an
excellent book for beginning and intermediate fusers. The website is
also an excellent resource because it contains almost all of the
out of the book plus lots of extra and
discussion forums. We never took a class to learn how to fuse glass.
We simply learned from the book and a lot of trial and error. We
certainly made more than a few mistakes along the way but that is
the best way to learn. Good luck!
