This is going to sound off topic, but it's not. If there's a thermal duration contest near you, fly in it. Get timed by experts and time for them. You will learn a lot in a hurry.

Of course Thornburg's book is excellent.

If you can catch some thermals and handle a glider well, try hlg or dlg. If throwing hurts too much, you can use a tiny high start. You'll get some accelerated training.
