Richard Pohl
Very comphrehensive volume offering a heavily Schenkerian approach to the voice leading issues... Includes for me very unusual techniques and views still based on the classical "Fuxian" counterpoint, but taking it in unexpected direction ("prolonged counterpoint"). If you don't have at least basic comprehension of Schenkerian thinking and methods, it's not book for you.

Got through second species. Not finishing this book. Well written though compared to other books out there!
