This is the book to turn to.

There's even a chapter for turbocharging diesel engines. Author Jeff Hartman offers thorough, clear, and useful information on every aspect of turbocharging. And, after discussing the components and processes in general terms, he presents a number of case studies that complete the picture, providing a real-world understanding of how these modifications actually work.

Review:

...this title does what the name suggests. It contains all the basics of turbocharging and forced induction, and as an intorduction to the subject is far better, due to having a nicer, more colourful layout and an easier to absorb writing style --racecar Magazine

If you're looking to understand turbochargers, put a turbo on oyur car, or tune a turbo system - this book is the one! All in all, this is a very easy read that really covers turbocharged engines and the issues in designing, building, and maintaining them --Rev Record

I recently read Jeff Hartman's book on Turbo charging titled 'Turbocharging performance handbook', and I recommend this book to anyone wanting to build, own, or enjoy a boosted vehicle. As an individual working in the automotive area and using boosting devices I have found Jeff's detail and thoroughness informative and helpful in my development efforts. I have read most every book available and found this latest effort to be superior in readability, basic science, history, technology, and theory of engine boosting. The overall presentation is better then any I've seen and the science is top notch with useful and practical insight and 'how to' A liberal assortment of project cars grounds Jeff's effort in reality. This is a great book, I'd recommend to anyone with interest in vehicle performance beyond the mundane. --Rod and Custom
