I read most of Mr. Bower's Leica M book, and found it pleasant, with
okay photos, but wished he'd get out earlier, while the light was
better! Nice chatty books for enthusiasts, I didn't buy it, because
there's plenty of enthusiastic chatting going on here, and it's free :-)

Perhaps you're looking for one of Gunther Osterloh's books: I enjoyed
his Leica M: The Advanced School book, but would prefer waiting for a
revised edition, as the previous one is kind of dated, and selling for
gouger's prices.
