you shouldnt need a book or anyone to tell you when to change gears. the manual tell you to change to second at like 10mph. I ususally do at 15mph (i have no tach) under normal driving and around 20 when getting on it...but you really shouldt be driving a stick if you cant hear when the motor needs another gear

There is no perfect time, it depends on how you are driving. If you're just around town shift whenever you want to, if you're racing, somewhere near redline is fastest. (in a high revving civic)
