Thanks for the list ! If you want a book on light itself, I highly recommend the book "Light: Science and Magic"... Very useful for product photography.

Thanks Bradcalkins, I´ve read some books on the subject, but none of them I liked, so they didnt make my list, I checked your suggestion and it seems like a very good option, maybe now I found the book on lighting I was looking for.

Thanks Racheld32, I am a bit of an addict, I have read a lot of books, many are just not worth it, feel free to ask me about anyone you like, maybe I can add you some extra information.

Thanks for the helpful information. Just to say that recently I borrowed a book that you mentioned from our library-"The digital photography book" written by Scott Kelby. I have found this book very helpful and have now sent of for all three volumes. I found lots of helpful tips that i didn't know about and would also recommend these books. :)

I participated in a CreativeLive workshop led by Don Giannatti this weekend and he was great! I haven't read his books, but if they're anything like his teaching, they should be wonderful as well. Plus, he does a lot of still life and product photography, so it's perfect for stock.
Here's a link to his stuff on Amazon: http://amzn.to/MTCrid

Hi Gordon Bell, thanks for the tips on the two books,
Brad Calkings have already told me about Light Science and Magic and the book from Douglas Freer I actually have read and is quite good, I didnt mention it, because I was focusing on the more technical details of photography, but it makes sense for us microstocker, thanks for reminding me of that.
