Here is the link to amazon:

I like this book because it summarized everything I knew about rhythm and harmony in the first 10 pages and then blew my mind from there. It's old school Jazz inversions rooted on all the strings, tightly voiced chords with an emphasis on chordal melodies and movements, substitution theory and comping techniques. I forget if it goes into quartal harmony and Stacked Fifths but you can google that as needed.
I just ordered the book based on your reccommendation, the reviews, and going to several music stores looking for a book comparable to that one with no success. Thanks for the link.
