Best gunsmithing rifles book?


I'm a decade and half vetern tool/die machinist, but only a shade tree 'smith:

What is the best technical/advanced riflesmithing book out there?

What is the same for auto pistols?

NOTE: I'm a machinist, gunsmith, writer, and instructor of many outdoor topics looking for gainful employment in any geographical cool place to live. Resumes Available.
