There are so many authors and styles of doog books in the market. It's hard to separate one style of training from another. Here are some great books written by Positive Reinforcement trainers and Behaviorists.

Sharing insights on how "man's best friend" might interpret our behavior, as well as how to interact with our dog friends that brings out the best in them. 
Jean Donaldson

Read up on my blog section and you will find
my personal review of this brilliant book. 
A book, no dog owner should skip. It's heavy - 
I do admit - but if you are truly interested in
how they become the dogs they are today, 
this book is a must read. This is a book, sports-
and working dog owners should definitely read. 
You will understand the capabilities of your dog much better. 
Heartfelt condolences to the family of Ray
