Accessible to arm-chair explorers, too!

Ninjalicious (RIP) shares insights about the hobby of urbex using humor and straightforward language. You really get a good feel for the attitude of urban explorers (in general) - the care true urbex practitioners take to not disturb sites or people in them, the concern for ethics (if not legality), the fascination with history and general curiosity that motivate them. Anyone who takes pictures of urban ruins should read this book, whether or not they're interested in the "exploration" part - because it explicates an ethos that I think anyone shooting photos in ruin sites ought to put into practice as well. For the reader interested in looking at ruin photos, this book also offers insights into the question of whether the photos you're looking at are exploitative in nature or really come from an interest in the sites.
