I'd recommend the same book too.

You can also find "A Guide to Shamatha Meditation" on Thrangu Rinpoche's website.

Leave the polluted water of conceptual thoughts in its natural clarity. Without affirming or denying appearances, leave them as they are. When there is neither acceptance nor rejection, mind is liberated into mahāmudra.
