The second edition of Trudgill's book includes IPA as well as the dictionary-type respellings making it useful to linguists as well as normal people.

Peter Trudgill, _The Dialects of England_ (Blackwell, 1990; pb 1992).  It's
nontechnical and uses dictionary-type pronunciation diacritics instead of
IPA; and it has great maps.
