Can Anyone Recommend Any Good Books on Guitar Improvisation?

Have been trying to get hold of the Guitar Compendium, but it seems to be out of print. I would greatly appreciate any suggestions for alternatives

The major and minor scales. Learn em, use em, love em

Practice with backing tracks on youtube. You can read any book you want but the only way you'll learn is by jumping in and just doing it.

Guitar Soloing and Advanced Guitar Soloing, by Gilbert and Marlis, are a good comprehensive intro to the subject.

The Complete Idiot's Guide to Soloing and Improvisation. Invaluable for me when I was just getting started.

Thanks for all the suggestions guys, Guitar Soloing and Advanced Guitar Soloing by Gilbert and Marlis is a great read, thanks for the heads up.
If you ever see the Guitar Compendium by Garry Hagberg really do check it out
