Default Good photography book?

I am planning to get a Nikon D5100 camera to replace my current Panasonic Lumix FZ50. I'm thinking of getting a book to improve my photography skills and make good use of the camera. I don't want anything simplified "for dummies", rather something in-depth and technical. Can anyone recommend a good book for this? Thanks!

This is the one I used when forcing my film-centric mind into the digital age.

On that note, I still prefer 35mm film cameras.

Thanks Jane, I have had a brief look at them and they look interesting. It is probably better to look at books with a slightly more specific aim like these.
It seems to me that most "general photography" books are written for people who have no knowledge or experience of digital photography at all.
