I heard about, Brooks Jensen's book, LETTING GO OF THE CAMERA, while watching Steve Gosling's Webinar titled, PHOTOGRAPHING FROM THE HEART, and I highly recommend both for inspiration and guidance.
The Kindle version of, LETTING GO OF THE CAMERA, is filled with memorable thoughts, musings and ideas. I was so impressed that I ordered a used copy of the "real" book (with the intention of highlighting and cutting out quotes). What a surprise--the used copy arrived, signed on the title page by the author. My intentions flew out the window. This book, in my opinion, gets a HUGE thumbs up.
Steve Gosling's Webinar is informative and gets to the "heart" of what makes a good photograph.
