In brief: Have a Look

Take a look at: "the 4-hour body: an uncommon guide to rapid fat loss.
." for starters....This book by tim ferriss is fairly recent and, although a bit controversial, will frame your interest and get you "up to speed" on several relevant issues in exercise and nutrition today. However, a single, all-encompassing book probably doesn't really exist! check out your local bookstore, too!
