* A history on the school of philosophy.
* The basic and maybe not so basic tenents of the school.
* A list of good authors on the school.
* Maybe a few sample works from the school (harder)
* A balanced book not intensely scholar but not banal and oversimplified either.
* If possible, the cheapest the better, my finances are not great right now.

I'm thankful for any and all suggestions, and thanks a lot in advance.

I don't know any book or e-book like this, but I can recommend two online resources. You could probably download individual articles or convert them using something like dotEPUB, but I'm not sure you could make an e-book out of them.

Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy
Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy

I have used the first one a few times and found it very useful on giving an overview of a school or a philosopher, or a philosophical question. The second one was recommended to me but I haven't used it much so far, but it does look interesting too.
