First, search MSVC online help for the topic "Porting 16-Bit Code to 32-Bit Windows".  It contains a fair amount of information that will help you.

If you prefer online docs, check the following URLs:
http://premium.microsoft.com/msdn/library/devprods/vs6/vc++/vccore/_core_differences_between_16.2d.bit_windows_and_32.2d.bit_windows.3a_.overview.htm
http://premium.microsoft.com/msdn/library/devprods/vs6/vc++/vccore/_core_porting_16.2d.bit_code_to_32.2d.bit_windows.htm

Accessing the info requires registration to MSDN online but it is free and mostly painless.

Hmmm...  Did you read the URLs?  They *do* contain detailed instructions.  I don't think there is a better reference.

However, if you insist on a book, check this one:  "Porting to Win32: A Guide to Making Your Applications Ready for the 32-Bit Future of Windows" by Thomas Lauer.  ISBN: 0387945725
