Does anyone have any particular recommendations for a good book/webpage that 
explains how to generate LALR tables? Something that, as much as possible, 
assumes a programmer audience, not a mathematician audience.

Though it sounds like you are looking for something more distilled,
this is the definitive resource:

Alfred V. Aho, Ravi Sethi, and Jeffrey D. Ullman. Compilers: Principles, 
Techniques, and Tools Addison--Wesley, 1986. (AKA The Dragon Book, 
describes the traditional techniques for building LALR(1) parsers.)
