You can also try "The Jewel Ornament of Liberation" by Gampopa.  It's like "the bible" of the Karma Kagyu tradition.  Simply written but with a tonne of information (which you will then need a teacher to explain to you in more depth).

I am sorry but you can't escape having a teacher (guru) in the Vajrayana!

"Words of My Perfect Teacher" covers the same ground for Nyingma tradition.

Funny.  Both these are my sacred texts.  Interesting how I always come back to both Nyingma and Kagyu...
