Can you tell me of some books/seforim about Jewish prayer (in terms of nusach, development of tefillah, etc.). A good example would be http://hebrewbooks.org/pdfpager.aspx?req=34206&pgnum=1 "Netiv Binah". They can be either online or in print.

Several I have found helpful:
There are plenty of excellent sources. A recent publication is "Why We Pray What We Pray" by Rabbi Dr. Barry Freundel.
I also enjoy looking at the Beurei Hatefila site developed by Abe Katz, a former student of Rabbi Isaiah Wohlgemuth Z"L who had an excellent mandatory Beurei Hatefila program at my high school.
