What resources can I buy/use to teach myself vehicle maintenance and repair?

I basically want to teach myself to the same standard as a qualified uk mechanic, but work/life commitments don't allow my to go to college or night classes. I can't get an apprenticeship either unfortunately, but refuse to give up on my career choice! Can anyone advise me on any textbooks I can buy, or books with relevant information? Any advice would be great fully received1 Thanks in advance
