    I don't have a book [that is] more interesting than this one.

    You can add "much" or "far" before "more" - "far more interesting" is more interesting than "much more interesting" (in my opinoin).
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
