    A person who is being interviewed about a book they have written will tell the interviewer lots of detail on their book.
    The book itself will have lots of detail in it.

    In the first instance, you could also say "lots of detail about your book."

    As Maxiogee intimated, it depends on the context. Yet again, I request that you pleaseprovide us with context when you ask your questions!

    "In the book" would mean that the book contains the details.
    "On the book" would mean that the details are about the book, and not necessarily that the book contains them.
