Bought this book prior to starting my job. It is one of the very few books out there on the topic however, based on my current experiences I can say it's a tad out of date.
If you just want to get an idea of what it's all about it's great for the building blocks. Many companies have their own terminology and methods so I feel it would be hard to spearhead details without breaking some sort of non-disclosure agreement but this book does a good job of explaining the bare bones and also supplying some helpful stories and illustrations.
If you just got a job and are thinking: "HOLY MOLEY I know nothing of localization"-- don't worry about it. You probably won't until you're actually in the job (and it will be pain and agony for a bit), but if you want an idea of it all, this is a nice reference.
