ISBN 0739031597. Rock.
Make all those licks you've learned useful by putting them together into cohesive, exciting rock solos that will take your listeners wherever you want them to go. Over 20 lead guitar solos are provided in a variety of styles, and some are in styles of specific legendary players. A complete analysis of each solo discusses its chord progressions, techniques, structure and other key elements. Styles cover a range of guitar heroes spanning from 1960s and 1970s FM radio, to American and British 1980s heavy metal and contemporary progressive rock. All 20 solos are performed on the accompanying CD.

Not awful, but not great, either.
This book might be of help to you if you're just getting your feet wet playing guitar solos, but I found it to be a little too simple. Even then, you'd probably be better off getting the Wolf Marshall Guitar Method books, or anything by Troy Stetina.
