First, determine if you are citing the entire book or if you are citing a specific chapter in the book.  This decision will determine how you should cite the resource.

If citing the entire book, see if there is an editor or editors for the book (most likely).  The format for a reference for a book with an editor is:

NOTE: References must be typed in Times New Roman, 12 pt. font, and be double spaced.

The format for citing a book chapter is:

NOTE: References must be typed in Times New Roman, 12 pt. font, and be double spaced.

Create a separate reference for each chapter with different authors if you are citing information from different chapters in the book.
