When dealing with binary classification, I most often find myself estimating a logistic regression model. I have tried a few other approaches as well, but to be honest I feel like I know way too little about all of the other possibilities.

I understand that it isn't as easy as following a 'model choice' guide. So what I'm looking for is a source where I can read up on the theory behind the different approaches, and then take it from there. Any ideas?

An Introduction to Statistical Learning also covers linear and quadratic discriminant analysis, tree-based methods (classification trees, random forests, bagging, and boosing), and support vector machines at a reasonably introductory level. The Elements of Statistical Learning goes into more depth, and adds in neural networks.
