Recently, two books have been published on the Colle system. Primarily on the Zukertort variation. Rudels "Zukem" and Pallisers companion to Starting out: The Colle, Starting out: d-pawn attacks.
Rudels book is quite good for anyone trying to get an understanding of the Zukertort variation of the Colle. It is limited with quite a few typos but these are addressed at his web site. (There is also a full chapter update there also.)
The book is basically a book on the lines he likes but his analysis is straight forward and worth the time to go through.
Pallisers book is in the same form as his other book on the "Mainline" Colle and is the most in depth book on the Zukertort variation I've found. It also contains ways to play against early deviations such as the Barry Attack, Mainline Barry and 150 attack.
There is a lot of information in these two books and any Colle lovers out there will find plenty of ideas to use and develope.
