The tacit reference can be imputed here as 

Harrell, Frank E. 2001. Regression modeling strategies. New York: Springer. 


Lachenbruch, Peter

Harrell has a lot more to say, not much good.  Some recent work by Austin and Tu (I think) in the American Statistician(?) or Statistics in Medicine (?) has suggested doing stepwise on bootstrap samples and using this in lieu of a stepwise.  It removes some of the bias.
You might also look up Frank's book.  I can't find it on my shelves, so I must have lent it to someone.

There is general agreement that adjusted R-squared for stepwise models  
underestimates the model shrinkage. Harrell says that you ought to  
adjust R-squared for the total number of variable considered in the  
model, not the number actually used in the final model.
