While not about polyamory per se, a book I'm finding to be an incredible resource is "Passionate Marriage". This book is about the dynamics of a relationship as it pertains to emotional maturity, an ability to "center" and stay in balance even when there is tension, the need to break out of "emotional fusion", and how even those who claim "no communication/no connection" are typically emotionally fused. It's also goes deeply into sexual styles, modes, orientatations, and the pragmatic means to become extremely intimate with a partner, right up to intense spiritual experience. Among many other insights, it's helping me understand my partners desire for what is needed (friendship->romance, "the full meal") to meet her need for a variety of sexual experiences.

Highly recommended!
