Where can I learn about engine swaps?

Hello, I am new to the car industry and ever since my friend showed me his k-series swap on his civic, I fell in love with cars. However, I try to find online where I can learn about engine swaps, what motors will fit a specific car, and which ones are better. Is there a source where I can read up on this? 

If there is a book on this, I will gladly appreciate the right guidance.

    Your best bet would be to go on message boards for the specific vehicle(s) you are considering.

    Keep in mind, it's rarely as simple as just pulling the stock engine and dropping in the replacement.

    You will not find a book.  Most non-standard (replacement engine is not the same as the stock) engine swaps are hack jobs.
