One book often overlooked, that I however found very good is Advanced Microwave Engineering - K. Balanis - NOT his Antenna's Textbook. The AME of Balanis is very pedagogical and explains wavegides in depth with a good rigor.
Many other books consider WG from the point of view of one mathematical form or another, but in the end it all boils down to 3 coordinate systems. In Balanis' book the detailed derivation is given and the field patterns shown very clearly.
I recomend that "forgotten" book. IMHO Collin is too heavy to beginners in WG.
One other book that is often overlooked is Warren L. Stutzman, "Polarization in Electromagnetic Systems. To date, I have not found other text apar that one on the subject matter but unfortunately it is already out of print. I have a paper copy of this source and would highly recommend to the inetersted user to find and read.
