Worldbuilding is an interesting subject.

I recommend this from the SFWA website. It is really expert on the subject: http://www.sfwa.org/writing/worldbuilding1.htm

It is by far the most widely referenced on the subject.

This is good if you want to do language construction:

And the book World Building by Stephen Gillett and Ben Bova is also excellent.
