No there is not. There is no one book that covers it all or that doesnt have some inaccurate information.
The best would be Scott Duffs and the one shown above. Even those are not perfect but is a start

I like the Jerry Kuhnhausen shop manuals for M1//M14 service rifles for parts specifications etc.

For exact parts identification, the M1 Garand Photo Essay by Larry Babcock is phenomenal.

I agree it does have great pictures but is full of inaccuracys and is not a good book for correcting a rifle
