that is an excellent book, which covers quite a wide range of things. its some 600++ pages long, so its quite a read but i do recommend it. also try some less lengthy chapter in books, something like "An Introduction to Computational Fluid Dynamics, The Finite Volume Method" by Versteeg and Malalasekera, there is a chapter on turbulence there, which is not too long, but is a good first read.

For a first read, try numerous faculty pages by doing a google. Then jump right into the book by Pope. Wilcox is also good.
