Consistency is probably going to be most helpful to you and your puppy. Plan a routine, stick to it. If you plan on not letting your dog on certain furniture, never let them start, if they are to eat in a certain room, that's where they should eat, etc. If you plan on having your pup sleep in bed with you, let the puppy sleep in your bed. I don't think it screws with "pack structure" to let a dog, especially a puppy, sleep with you, so long as you are consistent on rules, and structure.
I can't recommend anything because each author has pros and cons, and it is really up to you to decide what style you raise your pup with.
