Is there a good opening repertoire book for White advocating the Ruy Lopez exchange variation?

Larry Kaufman's The Chess Advantage in Black and White is a well-regarded (though old, by opening book standards) repertoire book that uses the Ruy Lopez exchange.


I had also problems with finding good book about it. What is worth Chessbase has videos tutorial about it and I find it quite resourceful.
