I really like Aikido and the Dynamic Sphere. I particularly enjoy Oscar Ratti's illustrations of the techniques. You get a better sense of flow than with pictures. Even though I train in another style, it's easy to see that the techniques are not really all that dissimilar. Many of the differences are semantic.
I mainly read it for the beautiful illustrations and explanations of the general principles behind techniques.
Here's a link I posted a little while ago that has AVIs for many techniques that you may find helpful.
You may also want to check the local library to see if they have a copy of Aikido and the Dynamic Sphere.
