The book Peter M. Lee - Bayesian Statistics: An Introduction - provides an excellent (and accessible!) introduction to the world of Bayesian Statistics.
James Stone - Bayes' Rule: A Tutorial Introduction to Bayesian Analysis

You might also find the book by Sharon Bertsch-McGrayne - The Theory That Would Not Die: How Bayes' Rule Cracked the Enigma Code, Hunted Down Russian Submarines, and Emerged Triumphant From Two Centuries of Contoversy - really interesting!
