Hi guys,
I've had a look through recommended books and went through a few threads about books to read on cinematography but can't really find the answer that I need. Can anyone recommend a book worth reading which gives an interesting insight into the work of a cinematographer. Perhaps it's a book about some important DOPs career, perhaps it's someone's thoughts about the approach to their work... I'm NOT looking for anything technical, nor any manual for beginners, nor a dry book on how things should be done but rather something inspirational. Any suggestions??
Thank you in advance.

Nestor Almendros' "Man with a Camera" is an inspirational autobiography by a cinematographer, about his quest for more naturalism and simplicity.

The interviews in "Masters of Light" are inspirational too.

It's not a book, but rather a documentary. "Tell them who you are." It's about the life of the cinematographer Haskel Wexler. Very inspiring and heartfelt, as the director is none other than his son.
