    His book "Fundamentals of Guitar" is really inspiring. I would put it up there with Goodrick's "The Advancing Guitarist" in that it isn't a book you need to work through cover to cover. You can find a section that looks interesting and probably spend weeks thinking about it. I particularly liked the picking exercises that were taken from drum rudiments.
