"Secrets of Studio Still Life Photography" by Gary Perlweiler is dated (mid '80s) but still really good as well.

Also "Digital Still Life Photography: Art, Business & Style" by Steve Sint is solid as well.

Finally "Matters of Light and Depth" by former cinematographer and lighting equipment designer Ross Lowell is , along with  "Light, Science, and MAgic"  is another core foundation book to understanding how to make, shape and use light for creative and dramatic effect.

Once you have a practiced understanding of using light, you should work at continually experimenting  melding techniques and tools as part of creating your own photographic "signature." Good lighting never comes out of a box on a shelf, it is part of your response to the subject and that is true even if all you are doing is photographing a client's products on a simple white background.
Best wishes!

Years ago there was a book called " Shooting your way to a million$" good straight forward book, bought it and never made a million but some of the articles were very handy. Peter

Not a book but a site worth visiting if you are looking to watch product photography.
