Damm, I'm going to pick this up for myself, thanks for the link.
I may get flamed for this one but I love how he hates TAB!

Mickey Baker's Jazz Guitar
Lesson 1 is fingerings for fifty weird altered chords that you can move up and down the neck. Then, chord progressions. Then, arpeggios and solos. Even if jazz guitar isn't your thing, you'll find yourself listening to other stuff and realizing "That's how they did that!"
(Baker was the Mickey of Mickey & Sylvia who had a 1956 hit, "Love Is Strange". He was a prolific session player, and you've heard him hundreds of times without knowing it. He died 27 Nov. 2012, age 87, in Toulouse, France.)
Ted Greene's Modern Chord Progressions
It's fruitful to switch beftween Baker and Greene. Greene covers the same general territory, but assumes a less-advanced student, and explains more theory than Baker. Greene's bibliography of music-theory and sight-reading books will take you as far as you want to go.
These books will teach you a lot about how songs are built:
The Beatles: Complete Scores
Elvis Costello: A Singing Dictionary
