I finished my second book yesterday. Non-fiction this time.
Pro Techniques of Creative Photography was written by Ian Bradshaw and published in England in (gasp) 1986. 
Obviously, some things changed since then. Recommendations on film are useless to me because I use a digital camera. The style and approach seem to be a little different now, too. However, the advice on composition and different things to try still holds true. The author also points out some common composition mistakes. 
There are a lot of photos demonstrating the progress from a bad shot to ok shot to fine shot to good shot. 

To sum it up, it's not my favorite, but it wasn't useless either.
