I'm interested in reading some good, informative books on posing and interacting with people for photography. Which are the best ones?

Hrm, I can't seem to make this Community Wiki. It should be, IMO. – Craig Walker Jul 28 '11 at 16:28
See also Books/resources on the artistic side of photography? and What are the first few photography books someone should read?. I'm looking for ones specifically for dealing with models, ideally not on those lists. – Craig Walker Jul 28 '11 at 16:30

If you are not limited to books, but consider videos as well, than you will find an exceptional presentation of this matter that in Bambi Cantrell's 3-day workshop in creativeLIVE.

She covers there, through live shooting of models, the basics and advanced techniques of posing your model and yourself in various situation, to get a message transferred. In addition she teaches how to effectively communicate with the model, mainly without touchig her/him.

I'm definitely interested in non-book resources, though that doesn't help me get free Amazon shipping. ;-) – Craig Walker Jul 28 '11 at 17:00
FWIW, she has three books that look interesting. – Craig Walker Jul 28 '11 at 17:04
But you do get free shipping, don't you? ;-) – ysap Jul 28 '11 at 17:05
