Modern Refrigeration and Air Conditioning is an overrated book. I was raised on it and there are far better books available now. It just happened to be one of the first so many people think it is the best.
Try these instead. Go to http://www.bacharach-training.com the scroll down to "Norm's Corner" click on it and you will be taken to a page containing a number of articles. Go to the last article. There you will find a list of highly recommended books.
