While not a technical book on how it was done, it excellently covers how the talkies changed the lives of actors, musicians and technicians.

I would expect that, if you took a survey, most people's idea of how Hollywood turned from silents into talkies would be taken from the plot of "Singin' In The Rain." That was certainly the extent of my knowledge. Turns out the change-over took a lot longer than that - Hollywood's history of adapting to new technology isn't all that admirable - and more interesting than you might think. If you're interested in how it all *really* happened, this is the book for you. Highly recommended.

This is by far the best book that I have read on the talkie transition period of 1927-1930. It is extremely well researched and detailed, but written in an accessible and at times wittily informed style for the casual reader. Highly recommended for the film buff/student with interest in this fascinating period of film history.
