I just bought the book "Mastering Modes for Guitar - Ed Lozano and Joe Dineen" it's pretty fucking good, comes with a CD aswell.

Exerpt from the cover:
"The mystery of modes lies in learning where and how to use them. The purpose of the Mastering Modes method is to help you develop a comprehensive understanding of modes, advanced and ethnic scales, and their usage. A primary feature of this book is the "Scale Overviw" that precedes each mode. This provides you witha quick reference guide that can be applied to any key"

I'd say it fits that description pretty well. I spent half and hour in a guitar bookshop checking out all the books on modes etc. and this came out to be the best by far.
