I read:

Your MBA Game Plan: Proven Strategies for Getting Into the Top Business Schools

I found it to be pretty concise with a bunch of useful advice and good analysis. They've also got a pretty good summary for top 30 schools and suggestions on what points to emphasize when applying there.
It's the sort of a book you can read in a day or two to refine your 1st draft of essays.

I think 'Great Application Essays for Busines School' by Paul Podine of Accepted.com is concise and to the point

It can be picked from amazon for just over 10$....
