Enter Digital Photography Composition for Dummies. From beginning to end, I learned new ways of composing my photos to be more appealing. Yes, some of the suggestions are extremely basic (find something to "frame" the subject, use leading lines, etc.), but that is to be expected for a "Dummies" book, which, by definitions presupposes you know nothing about the subject.
The author takes you on a guided tour of composition that helps you train your photographic eye to find the best composition. The suggestions are extremely helpful and well-organized.
You'll love this book and I guarantee you'll learn things you didn't know before!
