I bought this before I started working at a local automotive machine shop. It was almost like school. Read what they said in the book then get shown how to do it at work. It does deal with a lot of machining and it's all domestic, but again the basics carry over to most engines.
PS: If anyone thinks that automotive machining would be an awesome job. Well it isn't. Honing rods sucks balls, and is both boring as hell and requires all your attention at the same time. While decking blocks is just mind-numbingly boring.
