Constructing plausible language evolution

Apologies if this question has been asked before. I vaguely remember
something similar, but wasn't able to find it in the archives.

Is there any good resource for learning how to create plausible
sound/morphosyntactic changes for a conlang? Right now, I can only
guess based on what I know about a (very) limited number of (mostly
Slavic) languages, but I'd like to be able to go further than that.

I assume that there's no resource that sets out to teach just this,
but I'm hoping that there are some books  that you think would be
helpful, even if it's not the main thrust of the book; I accept
learning something else as a possible price to pay. ;)
