Hello

I don't know a special book, but i think the Praises To The 21 Taras is very powerful and anyone can do it.

May this be helpful.

I'm sorry to be an interloper to this thread, but along the lines of the o.p., are there any restrictions on reciting The King of Prayers?

No, it's fine.

There is also one book i know about the background and the practice of the 21 Taras, but it is not available in English.
It's written in German and French also:

While it is not specifically a puja text, I have found Ven. Thubten Chodron's book, How to Free Your Mind: Tara the Liberator, to be quite helpful in understanding more about Tara.

I love that one. On a printer that will do double-sided printing, it can be printed in booklet format and then stapled in the center, or cut in half and stapled or bound down the left side.
