Trying to study up. Aiming be a chef, but want to be rounded out.
I can't recommend titles but I can suggest strategies for finding them.
There were a bunch of industry magazines that discussed that stuff back in the day. But, I've been out of the industry for a long time and I don't even know if they exist any more. If you live near a place with a culinary/hotel management school, go to their library and wander around the stacks to see what you can see. Also, if there is a second hand book store close to the school you may be able to find used text books that can give you a leg up.
Most of the stuff I would know about is anecdotal, like Anthony Bourdain's first book Kitchen Confidential and even he admits there was some exaggeration going on in there.
Watching shows like Kitchen Nightmares: what not to do is an important guide in what to do, even with the dramatisation that occurs (suggestion: try to grab the British version for less fluff). <shrugs>
