Many thanks,
Steve

You mean just basic 1-3-5-7 chords?
Voicings?
What style? Jazz? Pop?

Rob Mullins has some stuff, though I haven't tried any of them myself. He is a regular contributor to these forums.

Otherwise order a Jamey Aebersold (beginner) play along and it will ship with a handbook with a bunch of chords and stuff that is very useful.

From there you can find out which direction you're headed in.

"Jazz Keyboard Harmony" by Phil deGreg is an excellent book for mastering chord voicings.

if you want a jazz chord book.... Jazz Piano Chords, by Misha V. Stefanuk - I just got it and I havent really looked at it much, but it's got a whole lot of stuff on chord voicing, and a long section that shows all the major, minor, dominant, diminished, and suspended jazz chords for every key.

Stevester,

You don't need a book:

The chords search, do you have a particular use in mind?
