I came to see about Neil Gaiman's book on norse mythology. Honestly i don't know anything about norse mythology other than asgard and thor stories. So i would like to get recommended for books
I haven't had a chance to read Gaiman's book, but the material from the Norse canon you will likely be most interested in is the Prose Edda.
This work was written/compiled by written by the Icelandic scholar, lawspeaker and historian Snorri Sturluson around the year 1220, and is filled with important and often highly entertaining stories of the Norse gods.
You can find free translations online, such as this PDF from Univerzeta Karlova. My personal favorite English translation is Kevin Crossley-Holland's The Norse Myths, but there are numerous other translations in numerous languages.
