Books? What are books? Try it yourself and find out!

Get |Rhinoceros 30 save trial version from their website, and start modeling! there are a few tricks to make solids using surfaces there.
-make surfaces that touch each other at their borders, and form a closed model together.
-Join them together with the Join command.
-You can now use the Solid tools on this thing in Rhino itself, and even SolidWorks (AFAIK) will recognize it as solid.

I would want to ask you to try it yourself, hands-on! if you get questions along the way which you cannot seem to answer by yourself, contact the community here. As you know, we will help. ^^ Since you are smart and love to do modeling, Im sure you will master surface modeling quite fast...

I have one called 'Solidworks, Surfacing and Complex Shape Modeling" by Matt Lombard. Publisher is Wiley.
It has a companion website where you can download the examples used in the book and you can walk thru them like tutorials.
